What started as an empty lot when Grand Theft Auto Online was first released has turned into a glitzy, glamorous, gambling playground. The Diamond Casino & Resort went live in GTA Online on Tuesday, introducing new cars, missions, activities, and the chance to win big (really BIG – check out this clip of someone winning 2.5 million on a slot machine!)

Here are 5 things you need to know about this new high-rollers heaven, and how you can get in on the action for less with discounted Shark Cards.

Welcome to The Diamond Casino & Resort

In northern Los Santos, a giant entertainment complex has taken down the “Coming Soon” sign and turned on its lights. The Diamond Casino & Resort is the hottest new attraction in GTA Online. It’s located on the eastern side of the Vinewood Racetrack, and the glow of activity should make it hard to miss!

The Diamond features a whole host of games to play, along with a Lucky Wheel that can earn you top-tier cars. The Diamond is also home to “the most opulent living space on the planet”: a luxurious new Master Penthouse. Step into a flat decked out with everything from a media room to a spa. Plus, each Penthouse comes with a VIP membership to the casino.

How to Get Chips

If you want to gamble, and possibly win big, you’re going to need casino chips. You can purchase chips at the Guest Services counter right near the entrance of the fabulous Diamond Casino & Resort. Each chip costs one GTA dollar.

You’ll also have the option of picking up either a Standard or VIP membership when you first enter the Diamond. Each membership includes free chips, and the VIP upgrade includes lots of other bonuses, too.

The best way to get the most chips for the least amount of real-life cash is by picking up a discounted Shark Cards. We have them on sale now in the CDKeys store for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
