Grand Theft Auto V is unequivocally one of the best games ever created; Metacritic has the Rockstar-developed game as the 9th-best game of all time.
Moreover, the game has sold over 170 million copies making it the second most-sold video game of all time too. We recently wrote up a whole piece with some cheats and tips in case you’re new to the game or a veteran looking to have some fun. With the classic game coming up on its tenth Anniversary, it’s only fair that some gamers are heavily anticipating Grand Theft Auto VI, which will most likely release in 2025.
Much of the popularity for Grand Theft Auto Online came when they raised the stakes by adding the Diamond Resort and Casino in 2019.
What Is It?
After Grand Theft Auto V had been out for over five years, some wondered if Rockstar would ever add any content to their all-time bestseller. On July 23rd, 2019, the Diamond Resort and Casino came to Grand Theft Auto Online to add even more endless replayability to a game that was already full of things to do. Constructed on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard the sprawling resort can’t be missed. It’s easy to lose yourself in the single-player mode, but we strongly recommend hopping on Grand Theft Auto Online so you can experience all the activities, missions, and money to be had inside.
What Can You Do There?
Once you’ve gotten inside the Diamond Casino and Resort, it can be a little intimidating with how much is thrown in your face. As soon as you enter, there’s an elevator to your left that can lead you to your parking garage, the roof, or the roof terrace. If you decide to stay downstairs, there are a number of games to indulge in, from the raffle wheel to the slot machines; there’s three-card poker, horse racing, blackjack, and more. If you don’t want to be in the hustle and bustle of the actual casino, eventually, you can add a private poker table to your penthouse to play games as well.
DLC and Missions
The inclusion of the Diamond Casino and Resort didn’t just add casino games like poker, it added a host of side missions and unlockables. Also, as you’re exploring the Casino and Resort for the first time, you’ll notice you don’t have access to the entire place, as there are a few VIP spots blocked off. You’ll have to buy a VIP membership to gain access to the six missions included with the Diamond Resort and Casino, but completing the missions nets you over $150,000 and gets you a brand-new car too.
Why Is It So Popular?
The Diamond Casino and Resort adds more hours of gameplay to a classic video game that has so many options and game modes to engage in. With the Resort and Casino hosted through Grand Theft Auto Online, the area is always busy, it’s also a great way to grind some money, especially with the poker glitch; making some extra profit is a breeze. As we’re guaranteed to have this iteration of the Diamond Casino and Resort for a few more years, now’s the time to take advantage of all the features and modes it offers
