Getting Drunk In GTA Online’s Casino Unlocks A New Secret Mission

The recently added casino in Grand Theft Auto Online has become a popular spot for players and has led to GTA Online reaching its highest number of active players since launch. But while the slot machines and card games are a big draw, there is a secret hidden in the casino for those willing to get really drunk, possibly multiple times.

The secret mission involves the player waking up after getting really drunk. An ambulance and some paramedics are near them, presumably due to their hard night of drinking. The player is then contacted by the casino manager and scolded for taking one of the casino’s delivery trucks out for a joyride. The manager will forgive the player for being a drunk asshole if they return the truck.

To find this secret mission, players first need to own a penthouse in GTA Online’s Diamond Casino & Resort. You need the penthouse to access the story missions that were added in the casino update. Host and play the first mission, Loose Cheng, to unlock casino work missions. These are short, randomly given missions that the player can request using their phone. The secret mission is hidden and is activated by getting drunk, not calling, but you will need these casino work missions unlocked to access it.

Head over to your private penthouse bar or the casino’s public bar and start drinking. Specifically, you need to drink shots of Macbeth Whisky. Each time you drink a shot of this powerful alcohol, your character will get very drunk, eventually blacking out and waking up in a different spot. Some players have found themselves transported outside the casino, to their own penthouse and to the casino’s bathrooms. To get the secret, you just have to keep drinking shots, over and over, until you get lucky enough to wake up in the mission.

Some players have been able to unlock the new secret after 50 drinks or less. Others have spent hours drinking Macbeth shots and still haven’t unlocked the mission. One player claims to have had 167 shots and still not unlocked the secret mission.

If this sounds familiar, that’s because this particular whisky shot was used in a different secret in GTA Online last year. In the nightclub update, players could drink this same alcohol and randomly wake up in different spots in the city. If you were lucky, or persistent, you could eventually wake up with a new exclusive shirt.

Unlike that secret and its exclusive piece of clothing, the reward for the hidden casino mission isn’t very impressive. It pays out around the same amount of similar casino jobs. However, there is some humorous dialogue that can be triggered while doing this secret mission, with Ms. Baker, the casino manager, claiming she’s never met someone who can be so offensive without saying a word, a reference to the fact your character in GTA Online never speaks.

Be careful when trying to get this secret mission. Some players have reported weird issues occurring when they wake up in their penthouse, like their entire living space getting sucked into a void and the world despawning randomly around them. The dangers of alcohol.

Finally, You Can Purchase The “Yellow Dog With Cone” Statue In GTA Online

Grand Theft Auto Online players waited years for the casino to open and the latest large update finally did just that. Players have been excited. But not all was well. You see, there was still something missing. But finally, our nightmare is over. After first being teased on the official website for the newly open Diamond Casino, The Yellow Dog With Cone statue is finally available to purchase in the casino’s store.

When Rockstar first started teasing and talking about the casino update they also launched a website alongside the news. This site showcased many different features of the casino, including various table games, penthouse features and more. But one item that was also teased was that of an art piece named Yellow Dog With Cone.

But when the update was released last week, some fans discovered that there was no statue available in the game. This became a meme on the various GTA subreddits and forums, even spawning the creation of a subreddit dedicated to only the yellow dog and their cone. It seemed clear that players wanted their doggo.

“Where is my Injured Yellow Dog!?!? Lol” Asked one Reddit user, after finding no dog statue. I assume the “LOL” at the end is just the way that user copes with sadness. Some folks smile through the pain.

Multiple posts popped up on Reddit and Twitter asking where the damn dog was and why the world was so awful. The reason the dog wasn’t in the game was that, as explained on the official website for the casino update, the store updates each week with new items. So the wait began. Players hoped that soon the Yellow Dog With Cone would grace their GTA Online penthouses.

“God I hope yellow dog with cone is added tomorrow,” tweeted one player as they waited for news of the updated store.

Finally, after what felt like years of waiting, fans were rewarded when it was discovered that the casino store had been updated for the new week and the Yellow Dog With Cone was one of the items available to buy.

“YELLOW DOG WITH CONE HAS ARRIVED” was the title of one of the various posts that appeared on Reddit after the dog statue was added to the game. As you might expect, players were happy and relieved to finally get the big yellow pup in their hands. “God has truly chosen us,” exclaimed one fan on Reddit.

Yellow Dog With Cone costs 41500 chips to purchase, but that seems like a small price to pay for something so wonderful and beloved. Players also found other similar statues, but differently colored dogs. As far as I can tell, the GTA community has no feelings towards these other dogs.

After being added to the game, fans began snapping photos of their new purchases. One fan even took the dog out to the beach for a nice vacation.

For those who need the Yellow Dog With Cone in their penthouse, act fast. Once the store changes again, we have no idea when or if our neon-colored pup will return. Don’t let this opportunity slip through your fingers.

Don’t disappoint Yellow Dog With Cone.

It Sucks Being A Valet In GTA Online

The newly opened casino in Grand Theft Auto Online is a popular spot. Players are driving up to the casino constantly right now. Luckily for them, there is a valet working the front of the building. But being a valet in GTA Online is a dangerous job, especially if you are unarmed and out in the open. Since the casino opened, this poor valet has had what you might call a rough existence. Being killed, beaten, burned and trolled regularly.

Earlier this week, GTA Online’s long-awaited casino finally opened and players came rushing through the doors to gamble and chill with friends and strangers. But outside, not having any fun, players encountered a lonely valet. This man, wearing a red vest and black pants, was waiting there to park players’ cars. This feature is currently hard to use because the dude is always dead. It turns out, most players seem to see the man in the red vest as a target.

Almost immediately after the update launched, players began attacking the valet, including many players setting him on fire. They really like doing that.

But even on fire, the valet doesn’t quit working. Players have shared clips showing the valet doing his job, even while fully engulfed in red hot flames. That’s some dedication to your job.

When the valet is not being attacked or burned alive, he is getting trolled. Players will often bring in ridiculous vehicles and then ask the poor man to park it for them. Players have shown up in planes, helicopters, submarines and even a giant dump truck. Come on, folks. He can’t drive this stuff. Besides, where would he even park it?

All this harassment and abuse has had an effect on the poor guy. Some players have noticed him freaking out for no reason or running away suddenly. Can you blame him? Every few minutes he is getting shot at or attacked. I’d start losing it too, under those circumstances.

As time goes on it seems he isn’t going to take all this punishment lying down. He is ready to fight back. Players who start a fistfight with the overworked valet might discover he has a mean hook and is ready to punch anyone who pushes him too much.

Another player discovered what happens when you drive too fast near the valet.

Because the valet is so often dead and nowhere to be found, some players have decided to put on the red vest themselves and jump online to take over the job. The current valet probably deserves a break anyways. Of course, players taking over the role quickly discovered just how deadly it can be to be a valet in Los Santos.

How does the valet keep coming back in GTA Online, day after day and death after death? Well, it seems this casino is cloning the poor guy. Though sometimes the cloning process gets out of control and because of this, players have sometimes pulled up to a casino sporting a dozen or more men in red vests.

One day, if we all keep killing the bastards, they might finally snap and their clone army will destroy the world of GTA Online. So be careful and maybe give that poor guy in the red vest a break the next time you visit the casino to do some gambling. He has a rough life as it is.

Nearly Six Years Later, GTA Online’s Casino Has Been Updated

If you head down to the casino in Grand Theft Auto Online today, you’ll see that some changes have been made. After nearly six years, it seems the vacant and unused casino is being updated, and, according to data miners, more changes are coming.

When GTA V and GTA Online launched in 2013, players noticed an unused casino just north of Los Santos. On the front of the building was a sign stating the casino was “Coming Soon!” Years passed. This sign became a meme, and the casino became a strange relic.

After a small server-side update to GTA Online earlier today, that sign is gone. Beyond removing the sign, the front entrance is now blocked off by construction props and cones. It seems something is happening. When I visited earlier today, I saw other players investigating the area too.

According to Tezfun, a well-known GTA data miner, this is just the beginning. He has found strings of code within the game that seems to lay out a plan for the casino. Tezfun says that over the next few weeks more construction-related props will appear, with the facade continuing to change for most of June.

What is this all leading to? The speculation in the GTA Online community is that a large update focused on the casino will launch sometime in late June or early July. The timing for these rumors and the updates to the casino are interesting, since last month Rockstar added gambling to Red Dead Online in the form of poker games. Could slot machines and blackjack be coming soon to Los Santos?
