For those ready to get their gamble on in GTA Online, you won’t have to wait much longer. The Diamond Casino and Resort will be opening next week in Los Santos. 

Rockstar Games uploaded a new trailer to their YouTube channel on July 18 and showcased what players can expect to see with the new update including penthouse suites, casino games, news cars and of course, a plethora of new accessories.


According to Rockstar Newswire, some of the card games available using chips will be three card poker, blackjack and roulette. Players can also play slot machines and even bet on virtual horse races. 

Players can also gain access to a customizable “Master Penthouse”  that provides the owner with VIP Membership status that includes access to VIP lounges, high-limit tables, and an assortment of other services with the penthouse phone.


As for the story, once the player has access to the Master Penthouse, they will become a member of The Diamond family. From there, the player will need to help property owner Tao Cheng and Diamond staff “protect their investment from the clutches of a corrupt family of Texan petrochemical magnates in a series of all new co-operative missions.” 

Completing each mission will reward the player with special awards and once the story thread is completed, the player will receive a new vehicle free of charge.

Another way for players to earn extra cash and chips at the casino is to do missions by calling Diamond’s Head of Operations, Agatha Baker.


Rockstar GamesPlayers will be able to gamble to their heart’s content in the new GTA Online DLC.

Additional info is available at the “official” Diamond Casino and Resort website

Rockstar is also extending last week’s stunt race bonuses until July 24. So players should try to rack up as many rewards as they can to provide them with an advantage once the Diamond Casino opens.

The Diamond Casino and Resort will be open for business July 23, 2019. 


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
