Time to pick up that car you’ve been waiting to get.

Although in the world of GTA Online $500,000 isn’t a completely game-changing amount of money, it’s definitely a welcome little deposit of cash, and could certainly help push towards that supercar you’ve been trying to get.

So how do you get the GTA$500,000? Well, it couldn’t actually be any easier: all you have to do is play the game!

As explained by Rockstar themselves in a tweet posted on May 1, anybody who logs in to GTA Online during the month of May will receive a $500,000 bonus, deposited directly to their Maze bank account in-game within seven days.

Also throughout May, GTA Online players will be able to get a Reaper as a Lucky Wheel Casino reward, cash, and RP boosts for playing different modes as well as discounts on certain property and vehicles, as per the game’s April 30 update.

The discounts might come in particularly clutch when you’ve got this extra bit of money in your account – so if there’s something you’ve been keeping your eye on, now’s your time to go for it.

There are regular promotions such as these for GTA Online, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for any news or updates on how you can earn free GTA$ in-game.

GTA Online October 29 update: Patch notes

Casino rewards vehicle

The Franken Strange will leave people for dead.
This week’s casino car is the ghoulish Franken Strange. Classed as a ‘Sports Classics’ car, this demon on wheels would normally cost you $550, 000.

According to the GTA Wiki website: “The unlikely product of Albany’s design team leafing through a vintage car magazine while in the depths of a masculine overdose. The Franken Stange will make you the envy of goths, emo hipsters and vampire wannabes everywhere. Don’t be fooled by what’s left of its old world charm; the steering linkage may be from 1910, but the engine has just enough horsepower to tear itself (and you) to pieces at the first bump in the road.”

So what are you waiting for? Go and spin to win!
