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.

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.
