The Long-Dormant Los Santos Casino is Finally Opening!
Rockstar is formally revealing the historic opening of the Diamond Casino & Resort in Los Santos. GTA Online is going to see the grand unveiling next week and it looks pretty amazing.
The Diamond Casino & Resort is going to operate very similarly to an actual casino. Players need to gather chips, which appear to be a different currency than the typical GTA dollar. These chips allow the user to engage in a wide variety of games. It is unclear at this time if the chips are going to have additional uses, such as potentially a money-laundering scheme.
The Casino boasts the type of gambling activities one expects to find. Among the game available are Three Card Poker, Blackjack, Roulette, and Slot Machines. Additionally, there are horse racing events and a penthouse in the casino. The penthouse is important because it allows players to unlock a second membership tier. Initially, players have standard memberships but upon buying the penthouse, they unlock the VIP membership. Furthermore, the penthouse unlocks a new set of co-op missions, where players work with the casino owner to protect the place from threatening Texans.
There is also an unknown game that Rockstar is calling the “Lucky Wheel”. Describing the Lucky Wheel, Rockstar state “Spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar that can be found whirling on the podium during opening week and be sure to check back each week to see what new high-end vehicle can be won.”
As part of the promotion, Rockstar even has an official website up for the casino.
