GTA Online’s latest update, the extravagant ‘The Diamond Casino & Resort’, has been garnering a lot of attention from the fandom. The casino houses a hoard of table games, one of which is the slot machines. Gamers who try their luck at slot machines are not only spinning the wheels but are also entertained by loud music and players cheering and cussing at the machines and other players.
Each slot machine is themed after a different GTA-TV show or a movie, which adds on to the entertainment factor. Rockstar Games recently fixed an issue by discouraging players from engaging in violence while in the casino’s premises. Before this rule was applied, cussing would often escalate into violence and ruin the experience of the game.
Among other table games are blackjack, three card poker and roulette, etc., Although exciting to play, many gamers have noted that the NPCs (Non-Playable Characters) win a sack of money with every spin of the slot machine, while players move around empty-handed.
NPCs seem to have decoded the slot machines’ algorithm which gives them an unfair advantage over the gamers. The virtual slot machines give away prizes if players manage to spin three of the same symbols in a row. The symbols could be the number 7, grapes, etc., Three sevens or three grapes in one spin guarantees a prize. Users were quick to notice that even though they were spinning the wheels much faster than the NPCs, the latter always managed to win while in a gaming session of more than an hour, the gamers could bag only one victory in all.
Although, one gamer who disguised himself to look like one of the NPCs got away with three cherries with a single spin as soon as he entered the casino.
