Major GTA Online glitch is completely ruining Diamond Casino heist

GTA Online players have been running into a pretty major bug with the Diamond Casino Heist that takes away pretty much all of their potential payouts. 

While there are a plethora of ways to make money in GTA Online, there is nothing quite as lucrative as the different heists. Players will invest a tonne of time, and a bit of money as well, in order to scoop up big rewards.


These heists vary from breaking someone out of prison, taking part in a run of the mill bank job, and even busting down the doors of the Diamond Casino and plundering some sort of special loot.

The latter of these examples, the Casino heist, is the most lucrative in the game. However, there is a major problem that sees players not take home the correct amount of cash.

The Diamond Casino heist can be tricky to navigate.

It cropped up at the start of September, with players reporting that the difficulty of their heist would change mid-robbery and when it comes to the end, they’d either have nothing or way below their normal payout. 

As Reddit user HolgerTM pointed out, even though the payouts are set so everyone gets a fair cut, sometimes this is as low as $8,000 from a $2,200,000 haul. 

The finale screen also apparently bugs out and instead of the celebrations seen from heisting the Casino, players are shown a normal mission screen with a smaller breakdown of what they completed.

The finale screen even bugs out for this Casino heist problem.

They aren’t the only player to experience the problem either. Others have reported that they’ve seen it happen in other heists, though some get lucky and avoid problems. 

According to maverick_dude46, there are a few key things to keep an eye on as to when the problem could occur. 

These include the free mode symbols showing up on your map mid heist as well as both the take and lives remaining appearing as zero when you exit the casino. Though, there might be others.


Some players have suggested that submitting a support ticket with Rockstar Games can actually help your cause and they will reimburse you. 

Though, the devs might just have to roll out a game update if the problems persist and become even more widespread.


Iconic Smash Bros Hyrule Temple stage recreated in Tony Hawk Pro Skater

Super Smash Bros Melee introduced many playable fan-favorite stages such as Final Destination and Battlefield, though none may be more infamous than Hyrule Temple. Now, a fan has recreated the Zelda stage within Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.

Hyrule Temple is an absolute blast to play in a casual setting as it’s one of the largest stages in the game and has five sections for players to battle in – three on the upper area, and two on the lower.


Due to the stage’s layout and Smash’s casual scene consisting of items and multi-player brawls, it’s really the perfect battleground for chaos to ensue.

As it turns out, Hyrule Temple isn’t just a good Zelda-inspired Smash stage. It also makes for a pretty unique map in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater.

Hyrule Temple has appeared in other Smash games since Melee.

Redditor Skramblez took to the popular site to share their recreation with the world. In a post titled “I recreated Hyrule Temple in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2,” the gamer showed off the map in a video accompanied by Zelda music.

As you can see in the video, the stage’s sections are split into their own variants of a skate park. Some of the smaller paths are replaced by rails for skaters to grind on, and there’s plenty of gaps to clear.

The edges of the stage are replaced with ramps, so you shouldn’t be flying off the stage like you’ve still taken a Ganondorf F-Smash at a high percentage.


As a nice touch, and sticking with the Zelda lore, Skramblez even made the character look a bit like Link – at least the most Link-like the skateboarding game could allow for.

Instead of a green tunic, the player has a green hoodie. Instead of the green cap, it’s a beanie. However, the character does have long blonde hair, just like the Hero of Time.

According to Skramblez, it took fifteen hours to make the map. “The park editor’s not the most intuitive, but you can do a lot once you get used to it,” they explained.
