Rockstar Games have rolled out a brand new update in Grand Theft Auto V, following on from last week’s major giveaway of vehicles, and it looks like more rewards/discounts are in order. 

The game developers are always giving the online experience a refresh, nobody can take that away from them, even if half of the community would prefer to be playing the next installment of the series by now.

New vehicles, Lucky Wheel rewards, cash bonuses, and mega discounts are always included in these content updates, so let’s take a look at what’s on offer this time around. Information here has been posted by Rockstar leaker TezFunz2, who often reveals info before official patch notes have been released.

GTA Online update June 25: What’s changed?

Lucky Wheel car refresh: Scramjet

There’s a brand new Lucky Wheel rewards that’s landed on the GTA Diamond Casino podium, and it can be won with one lucky spin of the free game. Each day, players are given a free try at scooping the jackpot.

If you do it this week, you’ll be awarded with a Scramjet! This set of wheels usually costs some $4,628,400 from Warstock Cache & Carry, although the luckiest among us might drive away in it for absolutely nothing.

GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
