  1. The Diamond Casino & Resort, the in-game casino of Grand Theft Auto Online, is hosting a grand opening next week.

    “Under construction” for more than five years, the massive casino sits on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard in downtown Los Santos. Players can gamble against the house in three card poker, blackjack or roulette. There are also slot machines, a lounge with virtual horse racing and even a wheel to spin in the lobby that is populated with various prizes.

    Ownership of the penthouse also includes VIP membership status which grants access to VIP lounges, high-limit tables and special services like aircraft and limo accommodations. You’ll also become a member of the Diamond family, unlocking new co-operative missions that award highly coveted prizes like new vehicles.

    The Diamond Casino & Resort opens on July 23.

    Ohhhh ..... I bet if ANY of this is tied to a loot box the gaming commission, not to mention the justice department will be all over them!

    As if this game was not already rancid enough, they are adding promotion of gambling into young kids. It's time to rename the gaming scene to the sinning scene. It's not about games being fun any more.

    Young kids? The game is rated M for a reason. There is no reason kids under 18 or whatever the rating is should be playing, and if they do that's the parents fault.

    Is every parent able to watch their or other kids 24/7? Loot box gambling is in small kid games. It seems as though every game is promoting the gambling.

    It's up to the parents to teach their kids right from wrong, and instill their morals.. As above-mentioned, this is an M rated game.. and parents should also supervise their kids when playing video games..

    when it comes to watching your kids while they're in your house...absolutely they can watch them 24/7. only thing that would surpass that level of parenting is other garbage parents letting said kid play m rated video games at their house.

    Yes, when I was a young boy, I was controlled.
    That's the problem of today. "Think of the children!"
    The word is "no". Parents should use that word a lot more often.

    Gambling would be the least of my worries vs. stealing cars, robbing banks, running over pedestrians, blantant murder, hookers, strip clubs, nudity, guns, language, killing cops, killing military....the list goes on with this game

    Gambling is fun imo. Horses, cards, sports is my favorite. It can however be harmful to ones net worth if your a ***** and cant handle it, just like creating any addiction.

    You can teach them all you want. I know respectable parents (even in the family) that had some bad eggs. They would tell their parents one thing and do something else (such as drugs, etc etc). Each person has free will and can be very creative on doing evil deeds.

    I'm guessing that owners of the PS3 version of the game will get left out to use this long lost belated feature, lol.
