Players can also now claim Twitch Prime benefits.

Rockstar Games on Thursday announced a major update to the online multiplayer mode in Grand Theft Auto V, allowing users to access new story missions, engage in casino and resort activities, enter the penthouse, and retrieve Twitch Prime benefits in its expanded community space. 

In the Diamond Casino & Resort, a brand new project that changes the Los Santos skyline, players can play poker, blackjack and roulette and spin the lucky wheel, as well as choose from casino-themed clothing and accessories to fit in with the resort-goers. 

"Spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar that can be found whirling on the podium during opening week," suggested Rockstar Games in a statement. 

The Master Penthouse is described as an "oasis of luxury" where players can enjoy a VIP lounge, renovate their residence, enter the media room, host member parties, play special missions as part of The Diamond family, receive rewards and plenty more.

"More than just a place to let go of your inhibitions and your sense of the passage of time, The Diamond is the one-stop destination for quality entertainment, high-end living and a range of experiences you won’t find anywhere else," said Rockstar Games. 

In Twitch Prime, all GTA Online players who link their social club account and claim Twitch benefits by July 19 can purchase the Master Penthouse for free in the Diamond Casino & Resort.

These updates will become available on the platform July 23.
