Among the games which are on offer are blackjack, slots, three card poker, roulette, and inside track betting, which features the kind of horse race names that were included in the much-loved GTA: San Andreas game.
Real Money In, But Not Out
Players are handed the keys to a virtual ‘Master Penthouse’, which acts as a customisable suite. Also provided is membership to The Diamond Family, and a set of missions which need to be carried out. Payouts come in the form of a number of prizes, and real-world money is exchangeable with ‘in world’ cash.
As you might expect, several of the slots on the GTA online casino are themed on elements of the game, such as Impotent Rage and Twilight Rage.
Setting the scene before its doors opened, developer Rockstar Games described what could be the most exciting virtual casino ever ‘built’:
“The massive construction project on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard is nearing completion, radically changing the skyline of Los Santos forever. When the brand-new Diamond Casino & Resort opens its doors, one and all are welcome inside to visit, or to stay in the most luxurious residence in the entire state.
More than just a place to let go of your inhibitions and your sense of the passage of time, The Diamond is the one-stop destination for quality entertainment, high-end living and a range of entertainment experiences you won’t find anywhere else.”
There is a VIP Membership option which, aside from nifty virtual perks such as ‘valet parking’ and a ‘limo service’, also entitles players to higher limit tables when playing the game. And if players link their Rockstar Social Club account with Twitch Prime, they will be able to claim GTA Online Twitch Prime Diamond Casino rewards.
