The Diamond Program

Main article: The Diamond Program
"On July 23rd, The Diamond Casino & Resort will open its doors and become the premier destination for entertainment and luxury living in Los Santos. To celebrate the grand opening, The Diamond Program will take VIP Membership status to a new level of self-importance with an assortment of perks and rewards. The velvet rope lifts starting July 23rd, participate in the action before August 7th to take advantage of everything The Diamond Program has to offer."
―Rockstar Newswire

The Diamond program was introduced primarily to reward players for purchasing the Master Penthouse and playing the Casino Missions and Work. There are four different tiers - silver, gold, platinum, and diamond, each having more benefits than the last.

Properties

"Sitting atop The Diamond is an oasis of luxury for those shopping for a lavish pied-à-terre or just a feature-laden property in which to entertain friends. The Master Penthouse that sits beside the Roof Terrace with infinity pool and stunning views entitles the owner to VIP Membership status including access to VIP Lounges, High-Limit tables, plus a range of special services via the Penthouse phone including aircraft and limousine services and more. Renovate your residence with several upgradeable floorplans including a private Spa with a round-the-clock personal stylist, a Bar and Party area perfect for hosting raging Member Parties and featuring private retro arcade games, and a Media Room to enjoy games of Don’t Cross the Line and contemporary Vinewood cinema like Meltdown and The Loneliest Robot In Great Britain. As an owner, you can select the Penthouse’s color palette and patterns, and cement a place among the LS nouveau riche with a range of modern art from the Casino Store – from refined portraiture to pop art and daring modern sculpture – that can all be moved and placed around your property."
―Rockstar Newswire

Activities

"If you're looking to dive into the action, the casino floor has a selection of activities to enjoy. Play against the house using Chips in Three Card Poker, Blackjack and Roulette. Slot Machines with a variety of prizes are also at your fingertips, while Inside Track offers a lounge to watch and cheer along with friends as the drama of virtual horse racing unfolds. Spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar that can be found whirling on the podium during opening week. And be sure to check back each week to see what new high-end vehicle can be won."
―Rockstar Newswire

Players can participate in numerous new casino-themed activities, including:

The Lucky Wheel offers special prizes, including cash, clothing, or even super cars. Each week, a new car will be available to win from the podium, including the Thrax, which will be on the podium during the opening week.

Missions & Events

Casino Missions
"With a Master Penthouse you’ll also become a member of The Diamond family, and the family business needs your attention. Help property owner Tao Cheng and The Diamond staff protect their investment from the clutches of a corrupt family of Texan petrochemical magnates in a series of all new co-operative missions. Each mission pays out special Awards for first-time completion and hosting the entire story thread will reward you with a highly coveted, brand-new vehicle free of charge. You can also pickup additional work and odd jobs to earn extra cash and chips with a quick phone call to the Diamond’s head of operations, Agatha Baker."
―Rockstar Newswire
Races
"Or pick up the highly customizable Weeny Issi Sport or Vapid Caracara 4x4 from Southern San Andreas Super Autos and take them out on the track in a new Race Series consisting of three brand new land racetracks in addition to four classic, fan-favorite courses."
―Rockstar Newswire

A group of three new land races were added to the game, together with a new "Race Series" featuring the new races, as well as four original races. The new races are:

RC Time Trials
Main article: RC Time Trials
"Imagine controlling a race car with just your thumbs and forefingers. Sound absurd? That’s because it is. But don’t let that stop you from grabbing the remote of a RC Bandito and smashing each other’s records all to pieces in new RC Time Trials."
―Rockstar Newswire

RC Time Trials were introduced as part of the Emerus Week event. They are locked to the RC Bandito and consist of a technical course with checkpoints, unlike standard Time Trials. Beating the course under the par time will award the player the same cash reward as standard Time Trials - GTA$100K.
