The Diamond Casino & Resort update added a host of gambling minigames to GTA Online, and it’s a decent place to make some extra bucks — if you’re lucky. But not every game is worth the time or the risk.
Best way to make money at Diamond Casino
Once every 24 hours, a player can spin the Lucky Wheel — a sort of Price Is Right / Wheel of Fortune mechanic — totally free. And whatever the wheel lands on is yours to keep.
You can win up to $50,000 cash, a supercar, or other prizes this way.
The Inside Track horse-race betting
The most profitable game that you can play repeatedly within a 24-hour span is betting on horse races at the Inside Track.
According to u/Enderpiet over at Reddit, the best strategy here is to bet high on horses you’re expecting to win, bet the minimum on horses you’re expecting to lose, and stop playing when you’re unsure.
You won’t win every race, and you’ll lose some money, but the idea is to continually bet high when you’re feeling extra confident and then bet low when you’re about to lose.
If you spin the Lucky Wheel and want to spend more time in the casino — really try your luck, so to speak — the horse-racing track is always the way to do it.
Walk away while you’re still ahead and feeling good.
The Cayo Perico heist
“On Tuesday, December 15, GTA Online raises the stakes once again with its biggest update yet: the Cayo Perico Heist, featuring an all-new exotic location and a brand-new approach to heist design that for the first time will let players tackle the entire heist solo or with a crew of up to three other players,” Rockstar said in an email.
“Along with the challenge of finding a way to infiltrate and rob one of the most secure private islands in the world, players can also expect new social spaces to party with friends, new world-class DJs, and radio stations with over 100 new songs, plus a host of vehicles and weapons, a heavily armed submarine HQ, and much more.”
A standalone release of GTA Online is expected to launch in 2021, along with new versions of GTA 5 optimized for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
