Rockstar Games is again giving Grand Theft Auto Online players a number of generous bonuses this week to help save up some much-needed cash, as well as a bunch of discounts on in-game purchases to blow it all, if that is what you prefer.
To start, Bodyguard and Associate salaries are earning double their usual rate. Bringing along more muscle on a dangerous ride can often mean the difference between a successful job or seeing your cargo vanish in failure. Now is the time to start offering those services.
Missile Base modes are also doubling their rewards, and are live now until June 19th. Head over to the Bunker Series icon on your map to begin a rolling playlist of modes within Gunrunning Bunkers and the Mt. Chiliad Missile Silo.
Finally, Simeon's Premium Deluxe Repo Work missions are also paying double GTA$ and RP. If you have been looking for a place to spend all that green, there are some great deals on a number of vehicles. The savings are big, so now is the perfect time to buy:
- B-11 Strikeforce – 40% off
- Akula – 40% off
- Pegassi Tezeract – 40% off
- Pegassi Tempesta – 40% off
- Mammoth Hydra – 40% off
- Engine Upgrades (land and aircraft) – 30% off
- Brakes & Handling (land and aircraft) – 30% off
- Transmission – 30% off
- Turbo – 30% off
- Suspension – 30% off
- Spoilers – 30% off
Alternatively, if you do not want to buy any particular vehicle right now, there is a case to be made for hoarding up your hard-earned cash. In early June, we began to see the renovation of the Casino, with the "Opening Soon" sign no longer in sight, replaced now by construction cones at the entrance.
While we still do not know when the casino will open for sure, Rockstar Games tweeted on June 13th to remove all doubt that we will see it soon.

Since details are scarce, we only have similar modes to look at, namely from Red Dead Redemption 2's online mode that recently introduced gambling. An important aspect of how Rockstar Games implemented poker is that real-world funds cannot be used to purchase money for in-game gambling.
This means that it is entirely reasonable to assume that only currency gained from missions will be usable in the Casino. For now this is purely speculation on our part, however, it would be odd to implement what is, in essence, the same mode in different ways, especially with regards to regional laws regarding online gambling.
For now, whether you want to save up some cash or buy a discounted vehicle, the timing is perfect to get into those missions paying double!
