Rockstar Games has kicked off its latest event week in GTA Online for The Diamond Casino & Resort. Available today from Legendary Motorsport, drive the latest exotic supercar to hit the streets of Southern San Andreas with the Progen Emerus for the small sum of GTA$2,750,000. Based on the real-world McLaren Senna, this car has the reliability, refinement and performance to go from zero to the absolute limit of ridiculous as if it’s nothing.
Also new to check out in Los Santos this week are the RC Time Trials, allowing you to grab the remote of a RC Bandito and smash the records set by your friends across a variety of courses. With the release of The Diamond Casino & Resort, Rockstar Games permanently increased the payouts of Time Trials from GTA$50K to GTA$100K. This week, the brand-new RC Time Trials are offering 2X GTA$ & RP, which means a successful completion earns you a cool GTA$200K. You can find them by heading to the new RC Time Trial corona on your map.
Speaking of double payouts, all modes in the Arena War Series are dishing out 2X GTA$ & RP through until Wednesday August 21st. Also available until this date is the new spotlight vehicle to be won from the Lucky Wheel – the Dinka Jester Classic. Spin the wheel once a day for your chance to win either this classic sports car, GTA$, RP, clothing and more.
Meanwhile, the Casino Store offers a rotating selection of exclusive clothing and accessories and this week has returning items such as the Broker Silk Robe and Chips Earrings, as well as sculptures and furnishings for decorating your Master Penthouse.
Ready to take advantage of the double rewards from the Arena War Series? To help you get started, Rockstar Games has discounted 30% off everything related to the Arena War update, from the RC Bandito to Arena War vehicles, upgrades and amenities. Check out the full list of these below:
As before, Twitch Prime members who have successfully linked their Rockstar Games Social Club accounts will earn an additional 10% off all the vehicle and amenity discounts listed above. They can also take 75% off the B-11 Strikeforce's sticker price and 85% off the Imponte Ruiner 2000. Players who linked their accounts before Monday, August 12th can also claim their free Master Penthouse in-game via The Diamond Casino & Resort website on their iFruit.
This week also begins the second qualification period for The Diamond Program. Penthouse owners need only log in to GTA Online this week (anytime between August 15-21) to qualify for Silver Status and a quick GTA$250K payout. Completing the second Casino Story Mission “House Keeping” affords Gold Status, featuring an additional GTA$50K and the playing cards-themed Royals Tattoo. Platinum Status is earned by completing five Casino Work assignments for Ms. Baker, offering a bonus payout of GTA$50K with a vintage Benny's Original Motor Works poster to decorate the walls of your Master Penthouse.
Finally, there’s Diamond Status – for those eager to go the extra mile to help Ms. Baker and the Cheng family business from the imperious magnates of the Duggan family. By completing all Casino Story missions (whether completed during this period or in the previous qualification period), you will earn another cool GTA$50K and the exclusive Red Diamond Tee. Keep in mind that all these rewards stack and completing all the prerequisites for each membership level will award you with a total of GTA$400K in addition to the items mentioned above. In addition, those who successfully qualified for Diamond Status in the previous award period need to only log in to GTA Online to claim these bonuses. All rewards featured in this second wave of The Diamond Program will be granted by August 28th.
Stay tuned for new gameplay, vehicles and events over the coming weeks in GTA Online, with “many more updates” slated to arrive in the future.
