According to a report of a gaming magazine (Gamestar) the casino is regulated in Germany. In other words you can use it completely but you can not  convert sharkcards into chips.

I can live with that.

I wish we could have this in Argentina.

There's a glitch going on right now that lets you buy all casino clothing with money.

This is good for region blocked players who can't get chips and for those who want to buy all the clothes at once (about 1.8m)

Works on all platforms, look for it in that other place.

Exactly! Why would it be allowed in one game and not in the other? Makes no sense. 

This probably has to do with using real money to buy casino chips. 

 

Technically it shouldn't be considered gambling as you cannot exchange casino chips for real money within GTA5.

Because of shark cards. In RDO you only buy gold which you can't gamble with or transfer into cash. In GTAO, the shark card cash and gambling cash is commingled.

it has nothing to do with cash cards or real life money, i cant even get the free chips Agatha Bakers gives in each of the missions you request or spin the wheel for free. (at least let us get the chips to buy clothes and the art)

 

it has to do with two words "Online" & "Casino" and what is the definition of those in the law in the countries that its locked.

 

at least we can get the clothes by glitching 🏴‍☠️

Oh god, I love my country so much at this moment

 

I still want to believe that its restricted in my neighborhood and not in Arg (?

Yesterday I confirmed with others in Argentina and we can win chips doing the Baker´s free roam missions, buy the daily limit chips in the cashier, buy from casino store and decorate our penthouse. Everything else is blocked( spin the wheel, blackjack, etc).

Something might've changed in the chips mechanic (unless I'm experiencing a bug). Gambling related content was completely inaccessible in my country (Poland), I couldn't buy or aquire chips, I couldn't even place free cactus on the floor in my penthouse. Today I got a call from Miss (it is Miss, ain't it?) Baker to do some cassino work in the freemode. I went for it, and, as I was about to finish, I was readying myself to experience black screen and some bs message about not being able to get chips. But then I did get some chips.

I've checked and now I can get chips from the cashier too, still can't use then for gambling, but I'm able to buy things from the store.

 

I don't use any VPN, everything with my setup is, as it was before. Is anyone else experiencing this sudden and welcome change? I hope it's not a bug, cos I really need that yellow dog.

Yeah they changed it. At first I couldn't buy anything and I had to use VPN. But now I can buy casino chips and I can get them from missions with no black screen.  

So now I only turn on vpn to launch the game and after it loads I turn it off (that still unlocks gambling minigames but I don't have to worry about lags)

Did the ToS changed for PC too?

What happens if a country changes their laws? Does r* keep track of every law system in every country and be ready 24/7 to act accordingly?

I think Finland is changing their gambling laws and trying to figure out how to block online gambling games from being played in the area of Finland unless the games are commissioned by the state run gambling monopoly.

And last time I checked, R* isn’t run by the finnish goverment so does that spell out bad news for finnish gta players?

Man, having a perky Sheila narrate the glitch tutorial makes watching it 1000% more enjoyable. If only all GTAO glitch vids had such bubbly and personable tutors..

Question here:

I'm a Moroccan who's living in Libya. My main account (ten-a-penny) is set to Lebanon because neither Libya nor Morocco available in the country selection thingy. My Social Club is set to Morocco, however. I also have a secondary account set to the US that I use to pay for PSPlus. 

 

Now, my question is: am I allowed the Casino or not? I still can't test since I don't even have PSPlus access yet, so I can't test. I'm living in Libya, my main account is set to Lebanon and my "exist only to pay for PSPlus" account is set to US.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but I can now buy chips from the cashier which used to be blocked for me before.

The wheel and table games are obv still blocked but atleast I can buy chips now, so if it didn't work for you, definetly try it now.

(this might even mean that you can finally start getting chips from Agatha's free roam missions for someone who's got the time to try)

Blocked in Libya as well. Can't use any form of betting, even the Wheel. Reasons I guess.

 

How do VPNs work? Are they for free or do you need to buy them? Hopefully the former, really don't want to spend even more money just for this game; and a small segment of it no less.

Some of them give you free trial. For example with windscribe you get 10gb to use for free.

1. you turn VPN on
2. you launch gtao
3. you can turn vpn off as soon as you load into a lobby (to preserve those gb for longer)

and thats it.

edit:
tbh you can turn it off even sooner. At this point I do it on the loading screen and it still works.

It's cheaper to use VPS and hand-made VPNs on them rather than consumer VPNs, some providers are offering plans as low as 1 EUR and VPN configuration for the basic needs is moderately accessible. Won't advertise the names and the situation is changing, just my thoughts. I'm using my own machine for that, but recently got a nice paid VPS and can confirm that even the most basic solutions are enough to play games and surf the net.

 

If you are not familiar with *nix systems, there are manuals to do that and I've recently tested one of them just to rapidly deploy the test server and can confirm it works. For the beginner it's the best guide. The only thing that is missing is Putty to get you on.

 

P.S. If you're using game console and your router is DD-WRT based (Asus is, for example), you can easily configure VPN client there to allow your console to use it:

This way, all your home traffic will be put over the VPN. If your router can't do that, you can always use your VPN connected PC: just feed the internet to the console from the PC via shared connection. Manuals are numerous and will vary on the OS.
