Rockstar sure knows how to play the long game, because the casino in GTA Online’s Vinewood is finally about to open its doors after years of speculation.
Rockstar confirmed that a luxury casino is coming to the game on Twitter today.

We don’t know what games the casino has in store for us, but the teaser above shows playing cards, chips, and a roulette wheel. Maybe the Ellen slot machine will make an appearance?
Another Rockstar game, Red Dead Redemption 2, added poker to its online mode last month. I’d say it’s safe to assume the casino in Vinewood will have a few tables.
Rockstar hasn’t announced when the casino will open its doors, but it’s likely we won’t have to wait long. The timing is ironic, considering the industry-wide discussion about issues like loot boxes, gambling, and ‘gaming disorder.‘
