Twitch star Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar decided to take his Charles Johnson character to the newly opened GTA RP Casino on the NoPixel server, but it didn’t exactly go as planned. 

The gambling center has been one of the map’s most exciting additions, period, since Rockstar Games decided to open its doors back in July 2019. It’s never been available in the game’s spinoff roleplaying server, though, until February 18, 2021.

NoPixel devs were hard at work, trying to make sure that things went to plan. However, quite quickly the leader of the 1G Squad made it known that something wasn’t quite right about its Blackjack tables.

Summit1g get trolled in GTA RP casino

The variety streamer, who has recently taken a break from his Escape from Tarkov stint to play GTA RP again, couldn’t believe what he was seeing in a couple of exchanges with a dealer.

Having been drawn an Ace and a 10 card, only to see a Jack come out – he had 21. Trouble is, so did his dealer, which meant that he wouldn’t be winning or losing this time, despite the good hand.

However, it didn’t take long for him to realize that in this GTA RP Casino, not all players play to the rules. The dealer took summit’s money and continued like nothing happened.

Now, for those who don’t know – in a case of a tie between the Blackjack player and dealer, neither party should lose or win at the table. Instead, bets are returned on both sides. Here, though, a glitch cost summit and meant he lost $500.

He said: “Chat, I lose that? We tied. That’s not – that’s rigged. I win with the… That’s bulls**t. I got Blackjack. That’s bulls**t.”

In his typical style, he didn’t take any of this too seriously and laughed off what was ultimately a hilarious moment for his viewers.

Messy NoPixel Casino opening

Actually, this wasn’t the only issue to have been spotted surrounding the casino’s opening, as some tables were calling “bugged” by several players.

One of the server devs – Koil – eventually stepped in to ask about the problems.

After summit stormed off from a game, Koil said he would report the problems to Dean. He’s the one who owns the Casino and is part of the server’s staff, assuring the streamer he would be issued a refund.

“You should still get a payout or your money back maybe,” he said. “Yeah, you should still get your payment back. I’m going to go talk to Dean, he does that part of things.”

While it was funny to see summit trolled a few times, making sure the games inside the complex work as intended will be their top priority. With a VIP Pass secured, he’s likely to return in a future stream regardless – with big money on the line.

YouTube star turned amateur boxer Jake Paul is once again calling out Conor McGregor and even reigning UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov in a new video ahead of his April 17 fight against Ben Askren.

Paul has been relentless in his pursuit of securing a boxing match against the Irishman McGregor, frequently challenging him in videos, making fight offers and videos mocking the UFC veteran.

On February 23, the YouTuber took things a step further by bringing McGregor’s rival, Khabib Nurmagomedov, into the mix, mocking the Russian and his mannerisms.

In the short video, Paul impersonates McGregor, Khabib and Askren in a series of sketches to promote his April 17 bout.

Jake Paul has become a force in the boxing community.

In the first part of the clip, Jake puts on his best Irish accent and pretends to be McGregor having a phone call with UFC President Dana White after his loss to Dustin Poirier.

“Dana, I’m sorry I lost, mate. I bought this fooking Lamborghini though,” he joked.

Next, he pretended to be Khabib while wearing his signature Papakha doing a press conference in the wake of McGregor’s loss at UFC 257.

“This is what happens when you spar little kids, okay? I spar back,” he said in his best Russian accent. “Conor McGregor must respect gym. Conor McGregor no respect gym.”

In perhaps his best skip, Paul put on an afro-style wig and a “Vote for Pedro” shirt combining both Ben Askren and Napoleon Dynamite.

“I just got back from my hip surgery, now I’m going to fight Jake Paul for a bunch of money. I’m going to invest all of it into Siacoin,” the YouTuber mocked.

Askren, however, didn’t take too kindly to the video and didn’t even think it was worth all the effort. In a quote tweet, the 36-year-old called the video “average work at best.”

“The guy has a full-time production staff and he can’t come up with anything better???” Askren asked to the tune of a whopping three question marks.

Knowing Jake, this won’t be the last time he takes aim at Askren ahead of their fight. We’ll have to see if he can walk the walk after all this trash talk when the two step into the ring on April 17.
