A casino is a facility where people gamble. Casinos are seen throughout the Grand Theft Auto series but Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas introduced gambling and interactive casinos where the player can gamble.
GTA San Andreas
All casinos are located only in Las Venturas
- Caligula's Palace (accessible)
- The Camel's Toe
- The Clown's Pocket
- Casino Floor (accessible)
- The Emerald Isle
- Four Dragons Casino (accessible)

There are three accessible casinos where the player can gamble. There is a variety of activities to wager money on. The player can borrow money from the casino, leading to a negative money value. If the money is not repaid, Carl will get phone calls from loan sharks threatening him to pay up soon or he will be physically harmed. If money is still not repaid, loan sharks armed with Micro Uzis and AK-47s will show up in black Vincents and attempt to kill Carl. The loan sharks carry a lot of money so money can be repaid by simply killing them and picking up their cash. If the player travels outside of Las Venturas, loan sharks will not spawn at all.
All accessible casinos in the game are protected with security guards so any unruly behavior (i.e. shooting inside the casino) will cause them to react aggressively and unable to use their facilities unless the player goes outside. The player will also gain a wanted level if one aims a weapon, uses a melee weapon, shooting near the guards (one-star), and kills them (two-star), just like when aiming, injuring, and shooting near or at police officers.
