GTA Online update: Vagner, free Ultralight, x3 cash bonuses, more

David Purcell

GTA Online update for July 9 has brought a boat load of new content to look through, including Lucky Wheel rewards, cash bonuses, and we’ve got the patch notes for you. 

Many members of the game’s online community might be looking forward to what developers have in store for the next title, GTA 6, although it looks like we’re going to be seeing a lot more of GTA 5 for the time being. After all, it’s been confirmed for a next-gen remaster.

Since that announcement, there has been a giveaway fest in Grand Theft Auto Online that players can really benefit from each week, and much of that is included in these updates. So, let’s take a look at when the new things will be added and what’s included – courtesy of TezFunz2.

When is GTA Online’s next update?

The content from the next update in GTA Online is expected to drop on July 9, 2020, and will be a routine refresh just like we’ve seen in recent weeks from Rockstar’s title.

Following on from that, there will be further updates on July 16, July 23, and July 30.

GTA Online update July 9: What’s changed?

Lucky Wheel reward: Vagner

Here’s the high valued Lucky Wheel reward for this week.

Last week, for the Independence Day update, there was a very inexpensive vehicle on the podium and it was a bike.

This time around, the Dewbauchee Vagner supercar has been added as part of the rewards, worth over $1.5 million in-game. All you have to do is spin the wheel once and, who knows, you could be in luck.

GTA cash bonuses, free content, and new races

Cash rewards are coming with this GTA Online update.

There’s a lot of free stuff in GTA these days, and those who complete missions regularly will know that more than anybody. As part of this patch, Stockpile Adversary mode has had its rewards tripled, with Air-freight Cargo and Flight School set for double RP and cash.

As for limited time races, these can be found below:

  • Premium Race: Cutting Coroners
  • Time Trial: Elysian Island
  • RC Time Trial: Construction Site II

Alongside those things, players will be able to scoop themselves a free Ultralight vehicle as well, for a limited time. The vehicle will be made free as part of the update, and if you’re not familiar with it, we’ve included an image of it below to give you an idea of what’s in store.
