It’s time for another weekly look at Grand Theft Auto Online, and it’s a big one this week, as Rockstar has finally announced a release date for the grand opening of The Diamond Casino & Resort.

This massive construction project located on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard is finally nearing its completion, and so expect the skyline of Los Santos to be radically changed once it does. It’s being billed as the place to be if you’re someone looking for the ultimate luxury, where one and all are welcome inside to play at the casino, or just relax inside the most luxurious residence in the entire state.

The casino itself is loaded with a great selection of activities, pitting you against the house using chips in Three Card Poker, Blackjack and Roulette. If you want something a bit more relaxed, then take a shot at the Slot Machines with a wide variety of available prizes, or sit at the lounge and watch the Inside Track play, cheering along with your virtual friends as the virtual horse racing unfolds. The ultimate prize for those seeking a brand-new ride should head on over to the Lucky Wheel, where lucky winners can get chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar. The supercar can be found on the podium whirling about during opening week, and each week a new supercar will be on display as the prize for said game.

New high-end fashion can also be bought from the curated rotation of new clothing and accessories in the Casino Store.

Of course, The Diamond is also home to an oasis of luxury sitting at the very top for those who are looking for the ultimate when it comes to feature-laden properties. The Master Penthouse can be found here, which entitles the owner to VIP membership status including access to VIP Lounges, High-Limit casino tables, plus a range of special services via the Penthouse phone including aircraft and limousine services and more. You can also renovate your residence with several included upgradeable floor plans, featuring spaces for a private spa, with a round-the-clock personal stylist. You can also opt for a Bar and Party area, which is the perfect setting for hosting raging Member Parties and showcasing private retro arcade games. If you’re more into contemporary cinema like Vinewood classics such as Meltdown and The Loneliest Robot In Great Britain, then a Media Room is perfect for you.

You can also select the color palette and patterns to decorate your Penthouse with, as well as pepper the place with a range of modern art to really drive home the fact that you’re filthy, stinking rich.

Ownership of the Master Penthouse also comes with a membership to the Diamond family, and this family business needs your help. This entails a series of cooperative missions that pay out with special Awards for first-time completion. Hosting the entire story thread is a bigger deal, and will reward you with a highly coveted, brand-new vehicle free of charge. Once you’re done and you’re itching for some more stuff to do, you can also pick up additional work and odd jobs to earn extra cash and chips from the Diamond’s head of operations, Agatha Baker.

If you still haven’t linked that Twitch Prime of yours with the Social Club, this next bit might incentivize you to do so. All GTA Online players who link their Social Club account with Twitch Prime and claim their Twitch Prime benefits by the end of day tomorrow, July 19th will recieve the Master Penthouse for free in the Diamond Casino & Resort, as well as receive GTA$1.25M and up to 15% extra GTA$ on purchases of Shark Cash Cards.

In addition to this huge update, Rockstar will also be extending last week’s bonuses through July 24, so take advantage of the included activities before the casino’s grand opening next week.

Grand Theft Auto Online is now available to play on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
