This casino was mocked at GTA Online for years, and many players were excited to jump online and eventually play some blackjack with all the GTA dollars they've earned over the years. When some of the players arrived at the casino, they found that most of them were unavailable due to the gambling laws in their countries.
Players in Iceland, Iran, Peru and Vietnam, among other countries, say they have no access to many. from the casino, announcing that they can enter the building, interact with other players and buy a penthouse, but can not bet on practice. When they try, an error message appears on the screen: "This feature is not available to you."
GTA Online Casino functions as a real casino in many ways. Players use game money to buy chips, then use these chips to bet on slots and board games. They can also bet on horse racing. While players can not make their profits in real money, it seems that the online casino is too close to the real thing for some governments.
For many players who have been waiting for the casino to open for years, this is extremely disappointing. And as some players point out, there are people who go into this message, although if the bills are accurate they live in countries that allow online gambling. But gambling laws and legal constraints are confusing and complex. Another problem is the fact that these gambling mini-games exist in a video game, which means they can face different constraints and rules than traditional gambling. There is also the likelihood that Rockstar will be too cautious in countries that have stricter gambling laws.

GTA Online subreddit, players have gathered a partial list of countries where casino games and cards are blocked.
Earlier this year questions. After Rockstar added poker to the game, players in Argentina and other countries found they were not allowed to play poker online with other players. Rockstar pointed players to this support page. The page states that some features are not available to some players for various reasons, including "regional restrictions."
Some fans have decided to use virtual private networks to bypass their country's laws and Rockstar bans. But this may be illegal in some places and may result in your account being banned if caught, so be careful. The GTA Online blocked most of the new update, making the casino an empty shell and loss of space for many players. Players can still buy a penthouse and gain access to the new missions added in the latest update, but these penthouses can not be fully upgraded to include private tables or slots due to regional constraints.
