GTA 5 Online players have today learnt the first official details about the upcoming new casino – which will be called the Diamond Casino & Resort.
Rockstar Games today revealed that the GTA casino will be opening its doors “later this summer” when it gets its big release date.
The GTA casino will bring with it “exclusive shopping, first-class entertainment and state-of-the-art gaming facilities”.
In a post online outlining the GTA casino, Rockstar Games said: “Whether you’re having a night on the town with friends or a seeking a brief solitary escape, The Diamond Casino & Resort is open to one and all.
“With something for everyone, The Diamond Casino & Resort will feature lavish amenities, exclusive shopping, first-class entertainment and state-of-the-art gaming facilities.
“Come experience the tasteful luxury that the Diamond has to offer including best-in-class concierge, valet parking, the exhilaration of spinning the Lucky Wheel for a chance at life-changing prizes, a finely curated selection of spirits at the bars and lounges, a range of sophisticated table games and much more.”
The GTA casino has stood in GTA 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online ever since the Rockstar Games title launched almost six years ago.
Outside the casino a banner said the establishment was “opening soon” but despite that for years it showed no signs of actually opening.
However, after a recent GTA update the “opening soon” sign was removed and cones were put out in front of the doors.
It led GTA Online fans to thinking this activity could be a sign the casino could finally be opening.
And then last week Rockstar Games revealed the GTA 5 Online casino would be opening its doors.
They added today: “While sitting in bottlenecked traffic on the LS Freeway, you may have noticed a new construction project taking shape at a small building nestled between Vinewood Hills and the scenic backdrop of the Tataviam Mountains.
“Don’t let the recent removal of that faded “OPENING SOON” sign dissuade you, The Diamond Casino & Resort – a brand-new luxury destination and the largest mass entertainment complex of its kind in Southern San Andreas – will open its doors later this summer.”
It had previously been rumoured that GTA Online’s casino will launch alongside Red Dead-style horse racing.
According to GTA YouTube content creator MrBossFTW, the casino will have its very own horse racing track out the back.
It’s speculated that players will be able to bet on horse racing and potentially even ride the horses.
