At Long Last, The GTA V Casino Comes To Los Santos

Published: Sep 2, 2019 - Last Updated: Nov 1, 2019

It’s the update that all Grand Theft Auto V players have been waiting for—the long-overdue arrival of the Grand Theft Auto 5 online casino.

The Diamond Casino and Resort finally appeared on the GTA V map on July 23. It enables gamers to play casino games like roulette, blackjack, poker, and slots. In addition, the GTA V Casino came packed with special features like customizable penthouses, virtual horse racing, extra cars, and plenty of missions to make sure that there’s more on offer than just blowing your money on slots games.

Where do I find GTA V Casino on the map?

The Diamond Casino and Resort is located just next to the Vinewood Racetrack. The casino floor features classic casino games like roulette, blackjack, three-card poker and slot machines. The slot machines have special GTA themes such as Impotent Rage and Twilight Knife. There is also a Lucky Wheel where gamers get to spin to win anything from chips and cash to a supercar.

Virtual horse betting on GTA

If the casino gaming gets boring, you can also bet on the horses. At the moment, this is only a virtual horse racing option at Inside Track, which takes its cue from earlier incarnations of Grand Theft Auto. Sadly, there is nothing in the way of esports betting in the Diamond Casino and Resort.

Gamble with real money at the GTA casino

Gambling at the Grand Theft Auto casino is pretty straightforward. You just buy Diamond Casino chips for $1 a time. This is capped at $20,000 for standard members. Then, high-roller VIPs may be able to get up to $50,000. However, gamers in some countries might not be able to play at the Grand Theft Auto casino due to licensing issues.

GTA V Casino Memberships

There are several ranks of casino membership for gamers to work their way through. The standard casino membership costs $500. Then, there are silver, gold, platinum, and diamond statuses that can be earned through completing special missions or buying certain items. These include things like helping the casino’s owner fight off Texan rivals or even snapping up a Diamond Casino penthouse suite.

The penthouses are all fully customizable with bespoke art and have luxury features like spa rooms, private bars, infinity pools, and a personal stylist to help you unwind after a day’s solid gambling. Thankfully, there are also basic crash pads that offer a cut-price way to get your VIP Silver Status at the Diamond Casino.

Los Santos finally got its own gaming establishment

Ever since the game launched in 2013, there have been plenty of conspiracy theories circulating about a casino in the pipeline. As a result of stray pieces of code referencing a “casino heist” and the “opening soon” sign outside of a defunct casino, it looked like residents of Los Santos might finally get their own gaming establishment. Thankfully, Rockstar Games have made good on the indicators.

Now, all GTA fans can now look forward to putting their dubiously earned profits to good use.
