The Casino in GTA Online will open soon. Players are hoping for a great DLC and content like cars, gambling and heists. However, expectations are deliberately set low.
What is the Casino? The casino building has been in the online world of Grand Theft Auto V since 2013. However, it was previously closed. You could view the property, drive across the parking lot and watch the ads, but getting into the building was impossible.
Now the developers of Rockstar Games confirmed a big change for GTA Online: The casino is open.
Official information is rare. All we know is that the Vinewood Casino will open. When the date is and with which further DLC contents the opening is accompanied, is still completely unclear. Rockstar has been keeping a low profile so far.
Players have these wishes to the Casino DLC in GTA Online
After the first changes on the map of GTA 5 had appeared at the casino, many fans immediately expressed their wishes for the new content.
What are these wishes? A Heist is supposed to be there, where you rob a casino. Specific vehicles are also required. Here we show you a selection of the fan wishes we found on Twitter, Reddit and in the GTA forums.
Roulette, Blackjack and Poker
Often referred to are games of chance such as roulette and poker, which players want for the casino. Poker has also recently been unlocked in Red Dead Redemption 2 online mode.
“Ahh Roulette, my Mazebank account is ready,” writes player CressAlvein.
At the same time, however, there is a fear that poker will be banned in some countries and players will not be able to access this content. At Red Dead Online, players wonder: Why can’t I play poker?
Luxury Vehicles and Villas for the Millionaires
The players want luxury vehicles to show off. They want to show off their money to the casino and drive up with hot sledges.
Also, one wishes oneself to Residieren noble houses and mansions, which show to the outside, how much coal one possesses.
On Reddit user, st3b0 writes: “Hope that to the DLC mansions and a few High-End luxury vehicles belong”.
Player TK_42one adds that he would love to have a chauffeur. “What’s the point of having a limo if I have to drive it like a poor man himself?” He notes that he is a powerful CEO in the online world.
In addition to the luxury vehicles, this desire for a classic Benz also received a lot of positive feedback.
A big DLC with Heists in casino style
Players generally hope that Rockstar will bring a lot of new content to GTA Online with this update and not just activate a few games of chance.
Heists are an important topic. The robberies bring a lot of money into GTA Online, and a casino theme would be ideal for such a scenario. Players on Reddit are immediately reminded of the movie Oceans 11, in which three casinos in Las Vegas are to be relieved by 150 million dollars.
Player SpreadableFruit writes on Reddit: “I mean, I keep my fingers crossed for a heist. But with a little effort, they can spark the hype that has been built up for years. People have always talked about opening the casino in GTA Online. It’s worth it for Rockstar, even if many people would be disappointed about another replenishment/delivery business.”
A quiet round to meet people
In the community, the wish is well received that one can meet in the casino far away from the chaos of the outside world in peace.
Reddit user xAustin90x writes: “I would hope that it is at least, if at all, an open lobby hub where people can hang out. Meet new people you can get together with, chat and just have a good time. Apart from the Third World War, that’s going on outside.”
These are the fears players have at the Casino DLC in GTA Online
You’re afraid of how Rockstar will implement the update. Microtransactions, overpriced prices and unfulfilled expectations are feared.
Player Weedmoney2 writes on Reddit: “Let’s set our expectations, really low.”
Overpriced prices for content/microtransactions
It is no secret that there are many incentives for microtransactions in GTA Online. New vehicles, aeroplanes and real estate can all be bought with the in-game currency GTA Dollar. However, new cars in GTA Online are expensive.
If you don’t want to grind a lot, you might buy the in-game currency with Shark Cards for real money.
Players fear that the casino DLC will provide a lot of content at overpriced prices to get people to buy Shark Cards.
Player FatherOMalley writes on Reddit: “I have the feeling this will be for the high rollers who own millions. Sure, I’ll bring my 200,000 GTA dollars and see what I can buy with them. Probably a drink at the bar.”
Expectations that are not fulfilled
Players expect a lot of new content from the casino. But they fear that the expectations are too high.
Player Jewbaccah on Reddit writes, “I bet $100 that this will be a disappointment, not what a MMORPG casino could become (Yes, GTA Online is an MMORPG in a general sense)”.
The opening of the casino has been hoped for many years now. Many fans have already been strengthened by these wishes, which they address to the opening of the casino. Can Rockstar meet these expectations?
