Rockstar Games have released their new weekly update for GTA Online, adding a brand-new vehicle, discounts for the Diamond Casino Heist, and some free Twitch Prime rewards.

While GTA fans across the globe wait patiently for an announcement surrounding GTA 6, Rockstar Games are continuing their hard work with GTA Online – keeping their multiplayer money-spinner updated. 

As is typical with the weekly updates, the developers have made a brand-new car available to be purchased, added some additional discounts, another car reward at the Diamond Casino, and some benefits for Twitch Prime members. So, let’s take a look at what they’ve added in the January 16 update.

New vehicle: Karin Sultan Classic

Anyone who has played Grand Theft Auto will be versed in the Sultan. The luxury sports call had made appearances in GTA V, IV, and San Andreas in different forms but that’s been expanded on in GTA Online.

The Karin Sultan Classic puts a spin on the fan-favorite car by keeping the classic four-door layout but throwing in a more vintage body and a new default spoiler. It can be purchased from the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website for a cool price of $1,718,000.

GTA Online Diamond Casino heist discount

It took a few years, but back in July, Rockstar finally added the Casino to GTA Online. Despite having the chance to win some cash in the gambling haven, players switched their focus and asked when they could perform heists there.

With the heist being active, the new update makes the take-home amount even better for success players. There’s a 25% GTA$ cash boost, while Support Crew members will take 50% less. 

That’s not the only way to earn some cash in the new update though. All Rockstar-Created King of the Hill & Land Races will pay out double rewards until the next content update. 

New GTA Online Casino spin wheel prize

As for more free content, players who find themselves lucky enough to strike the free vehicle slot on the Diamond Casino’s lucky spin wheel will get an exclusive new car.

That will come in the form of a uniquely customized Karin Everon. The pick-up truck will come already styled in pink and green paint, with some skulls and flames dotted around the vehicle itself – although they won’t make it any more deadly or quicker.

GTA Online Twitch Prime rewards

For those players who have a Twitch Prime account that is linked to Rockstar Social Club, there are also rewards in the offing. 

The Pixel Pete’s Arcade property in Paleto Bay is still being offered up for free. If you’ve already paid for it and just joined Twitch Prime, don’t fret, you’ll get a rebate in GTA Online after a few days.

As ever, the bonuses from these updates will be altered by the time Rockstar drops their round of content so you’ll have to be quick if anything interests you.

Though, it appears as if they’re really pushing for players to complete the Casino heist so it might be time to get that done before they drop a major update in the future.


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.
