Casino in GTA Online comes tomorrow - Players worry about restrictions

The release of the casino in GTA Online is imminent. But before it opens, players are worried about restrictions. Can I play poker in any country?

What’s going on in GTA Online? The GTA Online community expects the casino to open tomorrow. This has been in the game since GTA Online was released in 2013, but has been closed until now.

With the casino opening, there will be a lot of new content such as vehicles, clothing, real estate, missions and gambling.

The games of chance, in particular, are a source of anticipation for gamblers. Finally, you can play online poker in GTA. On Tuesday, 23rd July, the casino will open its doors.

Players are afraid of country restrictions

That’s what’s causing discussion: In addition to the anticipation, there is also a group of players who are worried.

In a few hours, the thread on Reddit already reached 2,900 upvotes and over 180 comments.

That’s the problem: players are worried that they won’t be able to use all of the casino’s content in GTA Online in their country. It is still uncertain which currency is used by GTA Online in the casino.

If GTA dollars are used, this could become problematic because you can buy this currency for real money. So if you can use real money to participate in gambling in the casino, laws of different countries could stand in the way.

-“That is my biggest concern. I live in the Middle East. FML” writes a player on Reddit.
-Another one writes: “Rip, my Belgian friends, including me” The background is that Belgium has strict prohibitions. EA had to give in to the Belgian Lootbox dispute in FIFA 19

What does rock star say? On the Rockstar Games support website, there is a topic under the keyword “A feature is ‘not available’ when playing online”. The question is why the feature is not available.

Rockstar answers that “certain features are not available to all players at all times”. This could have several reasons, such as “game design” or “regional restrictions”.

That’s how it works in Red Dead Online with Poker: In May, Red Dead Online released an update that unlocked poker in-game. Among others, players from Poland, the Czech Republic, Iceland and Argentina complained that they were not allowed to participate.

It remains to be seen which currency GTA Online will use in the casino and whether this will allow players access to some content. There may also be other laws that will prevent some regions from accessing gambling, regardless of the currency.

To start off with a small cash injection into the DLC, you can now quickly pick up these 52,000 GTA dollars.
