GTA Online players have been waiting for the casino to open ever since the game came out back in 2013. For years it had a "coming soon!" sign hanging outside. Then, earlier in June, players noticed the sign had mysteriously disappeared, and, in its place, the front entrance was blocked off by construction gubbins.

Finally, then, GTA Online is getting its Casino DLC.
