Grand Theft Auto Online, the online mode for GTA 5, has turned into a sprawling mix of activities--some more legal than others--and Rockstar has announced one more vice that you can live out in the game soon: casino gambling.

A tweet from Rockstar teased "a luxury casino in the heart of Vinewood." It also showed some stylized neon lights to evoke the casino look, but was otherwise short on details.

GTA Online updates come frequently and when something is announced it tends to follow in the game shortly after. Rockstar has not announced release plans for its casino or how exactly it will operate.

The online mode is technically a part of Grand Theft Auto 5, the latest in the action crime series from Rockstar. It has grown far beyond its original incarnations, though, and is largely responsible for GTA5 continuing to sell incredibly well even six years after launch.

Recently Rockstar was on a confirmed list of developers for Google Stadia, but it was one of only a handful of studios named without specific games attached. GTA 5 with GTA Online would be one possibility, since it already has a successful PC version up and running.

I don't see how they could go through with this without getting in serious trouble with gambling authorities world wide. Since in GTAO the only currency are GTA Dollars and you can buy them with real money. Sure, you can't exchange those virtual Dollars for real ones, but it's still gambling with real money. Not like you're guaranteed to ever win anything from real life gambling anyway. It's all rigged to make you lose money, which is why it's so heavily regulated.
