GTA Online Diamond Casino & Resort set to open July 23

The Diamond Casino & Resort is finally coming to GTA Online, changing the landscape of the online game as we know it.


GTA Online is getting one of the biggest updates it's seen yet with the unveiling of the "premier entertainment destination and community space," the Diamond Casino & Resort. It's set to debut this coming Tuesday on July 23.

If you've been playing GTA Online and couldn't help but noticing the construction project at Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard, that's the space to watch. That's where the new Diamond Casino will be opening its doors. The multi-floor establishment will feature a casino floor with three card poker, blackjack, slot machines, and roulette to place your bets with. You can also spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for your chance at more chips, cash, and clothes – or even the Truffade Thrax supercar if you're lucky enough. There's even a virtual horse racing lounge for you to watch races with friends.

You've got to look the part, too, so you can hit up the Casino Store for additional clothing options. Once you're decked out you can explore the Resort area, with plenty of gorgeous new decor to explore. You can get a luxurious penthouse here, and even include a private spa with personal stylist, a bar and party area, and more intriguing additions.

When you have a Master Penthouse, you'll join the Diamond family. As a member, you'll be tapped to help owner Tao Cheng and the Diamond staff protect their property from a family of Texans across a series of new co-op missions. You'll get special awards for finishing the missions, and completing the entire story thread gets you a brand-new vehicle for free. After that, you'll get Agatha Baker as head of operations for Diamond to call for jobs when you need quick cash and chips.

Right now, Twitch Prime members can link their Rockstar Social Club account with Twitch Prime by July 19 to purchase Master Penthouse for free in the Diamond Casino & Resort, as well as receive GTA$1.25M and up to 15% extra GTA$ on purchases of Shark Cash Cards. Ready to get rich quick in the world of GTA Online? Looks like it's going to be pretty flashy.
