GTA Online’s Diamond Casino and Resort is now open for business
It’s been a long time coming, but Grand Theft Auto Online finally has a casino.
The Diamond Casino and Resort opened its doors to Los Santos residents today. Players can head to the casino to play Roulette, Blackjack, and Three Card Poker against the house. There are also Slot Machines, virtual horse racing, and the Lucky Wheel, which players can spin daily to win chips, cash, special discounts, and a high-end vehicle.
A standard membership to the casino is priced at GTA$500 and includes a 5,000 chips welcome gift and access to several services. An additional 1,000 chips can be claimed each day from the cashier. A VIP membership is also available for owners of the casino’s Master Penthouse. A VIP membership includes access to VIP lounges, high-limit tables, and several exclusive services.
Owning the Master Penthouse also unlocks a new set of missions that involve helping casino owner Tao Cheng stop a corrupt family of Texan petrochemical magnates from taking over.
Another perk for VIP members is The Diamond Program, which offers a number of perks and rewards based on the players’ level. Silver Status is gained upon acquiring a VIP membership and rewards the “She’s Loaded” wall art and the Diamond Classic Tee. While players who complete the second Diamond co-op mission will be upgraded to Gold Status and get the new Truffade Thrax supercar and Truffade Tee. Next is Platinum Status, which is unlocked after completing five Casino Work Missions and rewards the Lucky 7s Tattoo and the Kronos Ara Watch. Finally, there’s Diamond Status, which is granted after completing all co-op missions and earns players two exclusive liveries. Read more about this new addition here.
As an added bonus, all players who log in to the game before July 31st will be gifted the Blue Diamond Resort LS Tee.
