GTA Online’s Diamond Casino and Resort

You can head over to GTA Online’s Diamond Casino and Resort if you feel like earning a ton of money without having to grind through missions and heists. Here are a few tips to help you win big.

The Cayo Perico Heist went live in GTA Online on December 14, and it has brought a plethora of new content, as well as plenty of new opportunities to earn some cash. While the payoff from the missions is impressive, there are other ways to get rich quick in Los Santos.

Aside from completing the usual heists and robberies, you can also try tackling the mini-games at the Diamond Casino. There are many things for you to do there, from betting on track horse races to taking a spin at the Lucky Wheel.

You’ll find ample opportunities to earn chips, and it will require less of a hassle than completing missions and heists. We’ll go over the best ways that you can win big at the Diamond Casino.

The more chips that you have, the better your chances will be of winning big. You’ll receive 5,000 chips after paying the $500 membership fee during your first time entering the casino, and an additional 1,000 every day that you visit the Cashier Services booth.

Those are all the ways through which you can net yourself some free chips. That said, if you’re willing to spend some real cash then you can convert real money into in-game cash to buy chips. Each in-game dollar gets you one chip when you head to the cashier.

How to win big at Track horse racing in GTA Online

Now that you have the chips, you’re going to have to start betting to win your fortune. One great option is to try GTA Online’s Track Racing where you can place a bet on a horse of your choice. You can win back double what you put down if your stallion wins.

We don’t recommend that you bet on the horse with the highest odds, as it won’t net you much of a fortune. You’ll want to maximize your potential gains by finding a race where the odds for horse number one are even, and number two’s are at least 5 to 1.

Refreshing the menu a few times will eventually find you a race like that. Even though you’re not guaranteed a win every single time, placing the maximum bet on the best horse will potentially more than double your winnings.

GTA Online Slot Machines

While betting on track racing is allows you to pick the horse with the best chance of winning, it’s not the method that will give you the biggest payout. You can also try your luck at the Slot Machines within GTA Online’s Diamond Casino.

You can net the highest amount of winnings by visiting the Deity of the Sun machines. These require you to match three symbols or one or two Ankhs to get your payout. One thing you should keep in mind is that no strategy will help you here. It’s all about luck. 

That said, you can still cut your losses by spending only a small amount on the machines. You’re not going to get lucky every single time, so your best tactic is to make sure you don’t lose too much.

GTA Online Lucky Wheel rewards (January 7th)

The Lucky Wheel always has some new prizes to win, and the Diamond Casino & Resort is offering up a new vehicle for you to earn for free this week. The Lucky Wheel’s new prize is the Paragon R sportscar which is worth $905,000.

Here’s the official description of the vehicle:

This is it. Wrap it up, folks. Thanks to Enus, humanity’s quest to design the perfect grand tourer is finally over. It took generations of privately educated stiff upper lips, all prepared to dig deep into bottomless wells of lazy entitlement – but credit where it’s due. The Brits cracked the code. This is the kind of self-assurance that can’t be earned. It can only be bought.

GTA Online Lucky Wheel

Much like the Slot Machines, there is no real strategy involved and you’ll have to rely on lady luck. Even if you don’t win the Paragon R sportscar, there are a plethora of other exciting prizes such as RP and cash.

You can get a free spin every day so try your luck, and you might just win big. That sums up all the best ways to earn more chips in GTA Online.

Apex Legends devs confirm fix for Xbox server crashing exploit in Season 13

The Apex Legends devs have officially fixed the Xbox server crashing exploit that was plaguing ranked games in Season 13.

Apex Legends players will be happy to hear that the Xbox server crashing issue that has been ruining games, especially in ranked, has officially been fixed by the devs.

Apex Legends Season 13 brought massive changes to the ranked system, which pros even believe will make players much better at the game despite the adverse community reaction.

Unfortunately, players on consoles couldn’t enjoy the new system to the extent that they maybe wanted to due to a serious exploit plaguing the experience and causing servers to crash.

Luckily, it seems the devs have fixed the issue with a hotfix that went live on May 25.

In Apex Legends Season 13, Xbox players noticed that they were able to crash the server and prevent themselves from losing Ranked Points by doing so. This was ruining the experience for others, especially as Apex Legends is cross-platform.

While some believed this was a DDoS issue, the devs confirmed it was an exploit on Xbox and pushed a fix on May 18. Unfortunately, the fix didn’t work, and Xbox players were still able to crash servers and ruin matches for others.

This has been very damaging for players who have been trying to rank up and enjoy the brand new ranked changes, even turning people off from playing the game.

A Respawn dev let the community know that another hotfix went live on May 25 which seems to have fixed the issue caused by players on Xbox consoles.

So far, it seems like this fix has done the trick, as players have not been reporting the issue in the community.

Finally, players can enjoy the ranked grind without having to worry about the game crashing and wasting time in a match that could all end in nothing.

With that being said, you may want to check out the best landing spots on Storm Point, which is the ranked map for split 1 of Season 13.

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op: Modes & how to play with friends

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op lets players team up and snipe their way through levels together, here’s all of the co-op modes you need to know about.

Sniper Elite 5 co-op

Sniper Elite 5 lets you team up with a friend to score gory X-ray kills on unsuspecting soldiers as a duo. Here’s how to play Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op and the modes available to you.

Karl Fairburne is back in Sniper Elite 5, and the series’ iconic slow-motion executions are in full effect as he looks to take the fight to the Nazis in WW2 France.

Alongside an action-packed single-player campaign mode, developer Rebellion has placed greater emphasis on multiplayer this time around. Not only does the Axis mode allow players to invade other games and wreak havoc, but there are also plenty of options for co-op play.

Here’s everything you need to know about Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op, from how to invite friends and the modes available.

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op modes

There are two different co-op options in Sniper Elite 5; Co-Op Campaign and Survival. Co-Op Campaign does what it says on the tin, and allows you and a friend to tackle Karl Fairburne’s story together, calling out enemies and coordinating kills like a well-oiled machine.

It’s worth noting that co-op starts a separate save file to any single player progress, and doesn’t pick up where you left off. This means you’ll have to start from scratch if you want to play with a friend, rather than having them hop in to help with one specific section.

The second co-op mode is Survival, where up to four players work together to defend a specific area from waves of enemy troops. Ammo and special items can all be shared around the squad as you try and hold on for as long as possible.

It’s an activity that will be familiar to fans of Gears of Wars’ Horde mode, with players facing increasingly difficult enemies in an attempt to rack up a high score.

How to play Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op

Whichever mode you choose to play, Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op can be accessed directly through the main menu.

We’ve broken it down into an easy step-by-step guide below:

  1. Boot up Sniper elite 5 and head to the main menu
  2. Hit the ‘Play’ option at the top of the list
  3. Under Campaign, select ‘Host Co-Op Game,’ or select Survival mode
  4. Adjust your settings for the experience you want
  5. Invite your friend and away you go!

Does Sniper Elite 5 have split-screen?

If you were hoping to play local co-op with a friend, unfortunately, Sniper Elite 5 doesn’t have a split-screen option.

At the time of writing, the only way to experience Sniper Elite 5 with other players is via online multiplayer or by taking it in turns on the same controller. It remains to be seen if Rebellion decides to add the feature later down the line.

Sniper Elite 5 doesn’t only offer a telling campaign experience, it also offers a variety of multiplayer modes that you can play with friends. Having said that, you may be wondering whether the game has crossplay, so let’s get into it.

Sniper Elite 5 is the latest installment in the sharp-shooting franchise, which continues to provide the tactical, third-person sniping combat players have grown to love from the games.

The series has grown in popularity over the years and has become known for its unparalleled sniping gameplay and legendary X-ray kill cam.

Sniper Elite 5 brings some multiplayer modes into the mix for players to team up with friends, giving rise to the question of cross-platform support.

The latest installment to the Sniper Elite franchise doesn’t just offer a single-player story experience, it also gives the option of co-op so that you can enjoy the campaign with your friends.

The game also brings a Dark Souls-esque Invasion Mode, a 16-player competitive battle called Axis, and the co-op Survival mode.

With all these great options for multiplayer, some players may be wondering if the game is cross-platform, either from PC to consoles, Xbox to PlayStation, or even last-gen to next-gen.

Is Sniper 5 Elite cross-platform?

Sniper 5 Elite does support cross-platform play, allowing those on all platforms to group up and play together or against each other.

Crossplay works between all platforms, meaning players on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation can all party up together. This also works for those on next-gen and last-gen, meaning players on PS4/Xbox One can party up with PS5/Xbox Series S & X.

There is also an option to disable cross-play if you’d prefer to stick with players on your own platform.
