GTA 5 Online Money Alert: Rockstar Games clamp down on Casino cheats

Sunday 10th May 2020

If you've been naughty in GTA Online, Rockstar knows and they're coming for your cash.

Reports this weekend indicate that players who've been using a glitch within the game at the Diamond Casino Resort are being punished.

Worse still, some players are reporting that they're not only losing their ill-gotten gains, but also, getting banned too.

Well, respected Rockstar insider TezFunz2 noted Saturday morning that Rockstar Games were resetting GTA Online characters for those players who abused the Casino Chip Glitch.

Writing on Twitter, TezFunz2 said:

"Rockstar is in process of resetting #GTAOnline characters, progress and inventory of all the players who have done the casino chip glitch aka the latest money glitch. Not a money wipe, a complete reset."

It seems as though Rockstar Support has also confirmed these details on their Rockstar Support website.

A new Support page has been created under the title 'Casino Chip Selling Abuse in Grand Theft Auto Online'

The specific support post reads:

Question : Why did I receive an alert when joining GTA Online saying that my account was adjusted and GTA$ removed?

Answer : Players found to be manipulating Casino Chip sales to gain GTA$ illegitimately have had those funds removed from their account or had affected characters reset. These actions are targeted at accounts found to be abusing sell mechanics for Casino Chips and any further abuse will result in a suspension or permanent ban.

All in all, it seems slightly ironic that for a game that's primarily concerned with players furthering their wealth through less than legal means, Rockstar are only keen on players doing it the 'correct way' and without cheating.
