GTA Online casino and if you would like to know how to play it, you have come to the right place. 

Rockstar Games opened the doors of its gambling mecca on July 23 and players have been placing bets on all sorts of different games ever since, including horse racing with Inside Track, roulette tables, and even for a number of card games too. 

However, not everybody will know that there are a small set of casino missions that are actually hidden in plain sight. There’s two, to be exact. 

GTA Online screengrabThere are tons of games inside the GTA Online casino, but there’s also some secret missions to play.

The first one that we reported on August 15 is called ‘Damage Control’, which we believed was the only easter egg mission for the casino. This requires players to drink as many Macbeth Whiskey shots as they can from the casino open bar until they drop right into the mission. 

However, another has been discovered and it’s called ‘Under the Influence’. As the name suggests, you’re going to have to do even more drinking to get access to it, but won’t have to be totally wasted this time around. 

GTA Online screengrabYou don’t even have to drink at the casino bar for this new secret mission.

Unlike the first hidden casino mission which requires you to drink inside the building itself, this one can be unlocked by visiting any bar across the GTA Online map. Simply buy a few of any drink you like at the bar until your character gets very tipsy, but not to the point of blacking out, and whip out your iFruit phone. 

From there, head to contacts and call Miss Baker, where you will be given the option to choose the Request Work option. There’s a possibility that it won’t work for you every time, but this is how to unlock the hidden casino mission – as seen in Influx‘s YouTube tutorial below. 

When done successfully, your character will remain drunk for the entire job, where you’ll be tasked with collecting a target vehicle for a casino client. 

If you thought this type of mission was hard already, try doing it when you’re not sober. 


GreekGodx banned again from NoPixel GTA RP server amid toxicity drama

One of the more infamous figures in NoPixel’s GTA RP server, GreekGodx, has been banned for a second time due to drama surrounding repeated rule-breaking toxicity.

The “Tay Tay Tyrone” saga may be over, as GreekGodx’s now-notorious Grand Theft Auto roleplay character has been banned from the NoPixel 3.0 server. In a clip shared to Reddit, players revealed that Tay Tay would probably not be returning to “the city,” which Greek elaborated on in detail during his own stream.

As it stands, the rationale behind this ban is unclear. What is known is that Greek and the server’s admins discussed the situation and subsequently agreed upon cutting off his involvement for the time being.

This follows numerous incidents in which he was found to violate the server’s rules by repeatedly making other players uncomfortable, despite them asking him to stop. In the most notable example, he was originally banned for constantly calling other characters “thick,” despite complaints.

That original ban was subject to various reactions, including summit1g’s, who found that the appliance of behavioral rules to the server was a tricky situation. He noted some inherent difficulties, namely, ensuring that such rules are applied to everyone and not just high-profile streamers.

As for the new ban, it’s not precisely clear what prompted it — but fans on Reddit seem to believe that it’s due to a general culture clash between Greek’s expectations of the server and NoPixel’s community goals.

During his own February 23 Twitch stream, Greek explored the issue in some more detail: “They’ve put me on ‘cooldown,’ because of the drama and shit. So even if I want to play, I can’t because I agreed on a cooldown.”

So he is banned from the server, but the decision appears to have been amicably settled on and therefore temporary. As for the differences in mindset, he also shared some details on why he feels the server is at odds with his content. 

Noting that the behavioral rules make much of the streamed content simply feel like a “Discord call,” Greek explained his wishes for NoPixel’s RP: “I get it: rules are rules. But people need to be a little bit more wild…a little bit more action … It needs to be a little more reckless … a little bit more crazy, to make it a little bit more exciting.”
