News on the GTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist payout
Today’s GTA 5 update is out now and comes with a laundry list of bugfixes and game changes.
And the biggest is the launch of the GTA 5 Diamond Casino Heist, which can now be undertaken on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
And something that gamers are looking to find out is how much is the payout for completing the big Grand Theft Auto job?
From what has been shared so far by Rockstar Games, GTA Online gamers have to first purchase Pixel Pete’s arcade in Paleto Bay.
This includes finding Lester and snapping up the new property before undergoing the big Casino Heist. The good news for Twitch Prime subscribers is that you will get the new property for free.
And even if you do have to pay for it, Rockstar Games will refund you the in-game cash at a later date.
If you’re having to buy it yourself, Pixel Pete’s will cost $ 1,235,000 and then you will need to spend extra cash to provide the Arcade Games. Other locations are also available that cost more to buy.
“To plan a score this big you’ll need the right location, crew and gear. Fortunately for you, Lester has already sourced the perfect front,” Rockstar Games confirms.
“Meet up with Lester in Mirror Park, then tap into Maze Bank Foreclosures to acquire the new Arcade property.
“Get the operation off the ground with a facelift by stocking it with some playable retro arcade cabinets and a little help from one of Lester’s family friends that’s looking to break into the ‘gaming’ industry.”
After this step, you will be able to start planning your heist from the basement of the Arcade.
The Hideout houses three planning boards and provides a place to store sourced getaway vehicles and heist prep equipment, as well as areas to stage rehearsals to practice cracking vaults and hacking doors with your crew.
You will need to complete preparatory missions and will also have the option to document various entry points.
Completing these little sidequests like destroying supply shipments and gathering intel on security systems from an old associate and former Casino employee, will reward you with more routes, approaches and options when it comes to the finale.
“You also need to make sure you have the right people at your disposal,” a message from Rockstar Games explains.
“Through Lester’s nefarious network of contacts you can hire support team members: bringing on the right driver, gunman and hacker are key – for the right price you’ll be able to hire some serious experts depending on how well connected you already are.
“The Diamond Casino Heist gives you three distinct approaches to initially choose from, with multiple ways to execute your chosen approach.
“Choose Silent & Sneaky to enter undetected and try to make off with the haul before they even know what hit them. Engage in deception by going The Big Con route and masquerading as maintenance staff, pest control or other contractors.
“Or opt to go in guns blazing with the Aggressive approach – just be prepared to be met with increased resistance.
“For each approach, you’ll have a series of choices for how you want to complete every step of the Heist. And if at any time your attempts at stealth or subterfuge somehow fail, you will still be able to complete the mission by dealing with any changing scenarios and pushing through to the end with your last remaining lives.”
HOW MUCH IS THE DIAMOND CASINO HEIST PAYOUT?
According to gamers who are conducting the missions today, the total haul available to steal is around $ 2.1 million in GTA Cash.
But when it comes to how much you actually earn, this all changes depending on how you complete the mission. You will also need to factor in everything you have purchased to make the Heist possible.
As mentioned above, gamers can spend more when looking to complete the Diamond Casino Heist in some areas, meaning your total goes down.
You also need to pay other Heist members a percentage, meaning you will lose money that way.
And there are also multipliers to consider when undertaking a new Heist, meaning the in-game cash payment could change each time you complete it.
It’s also being reported that Lester, the NPC that helps set it all up, takes a cut along with expenses. Reports range from $ 60,000 to $ 670,000 and gamers will need to keep an eye on it themselves.
So it looks like GTA 5 Heist planners could technically take home around $ 1.43 Million from an average finale if everything goes right. There are also reports that it can be low as $ 600,000, depending on what happens during your playthrough.
