Last year, Rockstar Games revealed that GTA V has become most money-making entertainment product of all time and part of what made that possible was its online multiplayer mode GTA Online, which kept players engaged for so long.

Despite making tons of profits on a five-year old title, it was recently revealed in a report by TaxWatch UK that the company paid no UK corporation tax in past ten years and an urgent investigation over their tax history is required.

Now that they have allowed players to spend real-world money via in-game gambling, developers will surely make more profit than ever even though more than 50 countries have already banned casino features of latest update.

A casino in Los Santos has been a long-time request from GTA Online player community and adding Diamond Casino & Resort has helped Rockstar to break their very own records of biggest player count day and week in past five years.
