GTA Online’s Diamond and Casino Resort Launches Next Week

Rockstar goes into the casino business, and we're the lucky players.

The longevity of Grand Theft Auto Online is something of a miracle considering that the initial launch was a huge mess. Now, there are so many things to do within the realm of the virtual San Andreas that it seems like Rockstar has done literally everything they could to ensure that people are always entertained. That was the thought until they announced yet another addition to the game, this time a giant diamond studded casino, and it releases next week on July 23.

Appropriately titled the Diamond and Casino Resort, the new expansion allows players to gamble with their hard earned money with classic card game staples such as Three Card Poker, Blackjack, Slot Machines, and betting on Horse Races. In addition, you can head to the top of the building where the Master Penthouse awaits. If you have an exorbitant amount of cash then you can outright buy the penthouse and obtain a special VIP which gets you into the VIP Lounges, High Roller Tables, and other special services.

Similar to other expansions in the game, players will need to pour some of their in game money to access some of the story-related missions, which in turn gives you special rewards and a brand new expansion-only vehicle. If you’re lacking in cash, don’t worry too much. Rockstar has made a deal with Twitch, allowing anyone with a Twitch Prime subscription to get the Master Penthouse for free, as well as $1.25 million in GTA money. If you have an account, then act fast because this deal only goes through the end of July 19, which is tomorrow.

Grand Theft Auto Online Diamond and Casino Resort Launches on Tuesday, July 23 for multiple platforms. You can check out the reveal trailer here:
