Casinos are deeply embedded in the San Andreas version of Grand Theft Auto. This version is centred on San Andreas, a US state that encompasses California and Nevada and that includes the three major cities of Los Santos (Los Angeles), San Fierro (San Francisco) and Las Venturas (Las Vegas).

In this version the player controls the brave anti-hero Carl James who is on the run from the cops for a murder he didn’t commit, and who is trying to regain control of the streets and save his family while dealing with the gang wars and decadence that he had escaped from for over recent years by his voluntary exile to Liberty City.

Casinos play an important role in many aspects of the game. They are the centre of turf wars between various Triads, each of which own a casino, and the Mafia. Carl himself is a partner in the Four Dragons Casino which is in conflict with the mafia run Caligula’s Palace casino.

Of the thirteen casinos that feature in the game, players can play online casino type games in three of them. These are the Four Dragons Casino, Caligula’s Palace and the Casino Floor. The games include classics such as roulette, blackjack, video poker, slots or the wheel of fortune that you can find on sites such as In addition there is a horse race betting game and pool. You can win money on these games that you can use in other game scenarios.

There are also things that you can do to tip the advantage of these gambling games in your favour. For instance you can collect lucky horseshoes when you come across them and they increase you luck. And there are a number of cheats available that you can use to ensure that you are even luckier, but you will have to search for those.

Casinos will also lend you money, but if it is not repaid then the heavy squad will surely come after you, so make sure that you are yourself with a powerful gun.
