To some that played Grand Theft Auto V will be exhilarated that these social pastimes will be dropping in the game as only minigames are the closest thing to gambling such as darts or arm wrestling. But, fans more involved in the community might have seen this coming a few years now if paid attention to the finer details.
Looking at the header for this piece is the probable location for the coming casino, reading the banner on the front reads “coming soon”. Fans picked up on this when exploring since the game’s initial launch back in 2013 prior to the remastered version which dropped for modern hardware the following year. But since the discovery, nothing has been brought to when the Vinewood Casino will open, until now that is.
