GTA Online: New events, best deals, additions, and GTA+ bonuses (July 9th)

By Tom West,

GTA Online players have another week of exciting rewards, bonuses, discounts, and events to look forward to on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, as well as those of you with a GTA+ membership.

Los Santos really is a land of giving, and Rockstar makes sure to remind us of that every week with the introduction of various bonuses, discounts, and freebies in GTA Online. Whether you enjoy going head-to-head with other players, shopping around for bargains, going for joyrides in brand-new vehicles, or losing yourself in your work while you're growing your business, there should be something for everyone on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.

All the non-GTA+ bonuses and rewards listed here will be available until Wednesday, July 13th, and during that time we can enjoy the games found at the Diamond Casino... well, the money won from the games anyway. Plus, we're also encouraged to nerd out at the Arcade property, while using its basement to establish a fool-proof way of making a ton of money.

GTA+ members on Xbox Series X|S can enjoy the benefits of their subscription with the likes of a brand-new car, a flashy new Penthouse to go with it, and more. It'll all be available through July 18th, so it looks like Rockstar might be stepping away from the month-long period of GTA+ bonuses.

GTA Online's freebies, events, bonuses, and discounts for all players (Ends July 13th)

Free stuff!

Who doesn’t like freebies? This week has a few of the usual suspects available such as Test Track vehicles and Diamond Casino Podium prizes.
  • Lucky Wheel: Head over to the Diamond Casino & Resort to claim your free spin on The Lucky Wheel and be in with a chance of winning RP, GTA$, clothing, snacks, and more. If you’re super lucky you might even win this week’s podium prize: The Dinka Sugoi!

Events & Bonuses

Unlike the easy gains above, these offers require you to put in a little effort — that doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, though.
  • Casino Work: Give Ms. Baker a call this week to lend a hand with Casino Work missions, and you'll earn x3 GTA$ and RP. Completing House Keeping and Cashing Out will also reward you with an additional GTA$100K and GTA$200K, respectively.

  • Open Wheel Races: Hop into some rocket-fuelled track toys in Open Wheel Races this week to not only feel like an F1 driver but also to earn yourself x2 GTA$ and RP.
  • Overtime Shootout: Race towards a ramp in your favourite vehicle only to jump out mid-air to parachute into the target zone like Vin Diesel in XXX, and you'll not only feel like a badass but also earn yourself x2 GTA$ and RP.
  • Prize Ride: LS Car Meet members who take part in the LS Car Meet Races this week, and place in the top five for three days in a row, will earn the Übermacht Zion Classic.
Xbox Series X|S only
Thanks to Hao's Special Works, players on Xbox Series X|S will be offered exclusive activities each week on top of the other events and bonuses.
  • Time Trial: Head to Hao's Special Works this week to see how some of his heavily modified vehicles handle the latest HSW Time Trial between East Vinewood and Vespucci Beach.
