It features as one of the most prominent games when you enter the Diamond Casino, and players are often queuing up for their turn on it, but did you know there's a GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch you can use to continue spinning until you hit your chosen prize – including the Podium Car? The wheel is designed to impose a 24 hour cooldown period before you can spin it again in the GTA Online Casino, for another chance to collect awards such as Chips, GTA$, RP, and of course the coveted Podium Car. Usually you'd have to take the first prize the spinner drops on, but if you take advantage of the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch we describe here then you can give yourself unlimited respins to earn your reward of choice. Follow this method in GTA Online and you could soon be parking a flash new ride in your garage, completely for free.

Another prize worth considering is the Mystery item, which covers a wide range of items – you could receive something very low-value such as consumables, but players have also reported winning vehicles such as the Rocket Voltic or even the rare and highly coveted Lost Slamvan. If the Lucky Wheel does land on Mystery, you can quickly see what your reward is then follow the process below for another go if you're not satisfied with the outcome.

How to win your choice of prize with the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch

To use the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch, you need to be ready to quickly quit the game if the outcome of the spin is not the one you want. To do this, interact with the Lucky Wheel then push the left stick up and quickly pull it down to give it a strong spin, allowing you time to set up the next step. On PS4, press and hold the PS button to bring up the Quick Menu, then hover over the Close Application option and hit X twice if you don't get the prize you want. For Xbox One, wait until you see what the outcome of your spin is going to be, then if you're not happy with it quickly press the Xbox button, scroll to GTA 5 and press the Menu button then choose Quit. PC users can simply press their defined keyboard shortcut to quit once the result is seen.

All you need to do now is reload the game, and repeat the process for another chance to win the prize of your choice. Due to loading times it can take a short while to get back in, though you can speed things up a little by marking GTA Online to load as default in the Settings > Saving And Startup > Startup Flow menu, and setting the Casino Penthouse as your starting point on the Interaction Menu > Spawn Location option. Obviously, once you receive a prize you're happy with, don't quit the game and continue to collect your reward.

Are there any risks involved with using the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch?

Technically all you're doing here is quitting the game, but using the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch is still gaming the system in order to secure a higher value prize for yourself. If Rockstar detect irregular activity on your account then it's possible you could receive a temporary or permanent ban, though this is unlikely if you use this glitch responsibly – for example, winning a brand new sports car and the top cash/RP amount every day is likely to raise suspicions, but a single Podium Car win among other prizes would not look out of place.

The GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch has been known by players for several weeks already, and due to how it works it could be a difficult exploit for Rockstar to counter. However, it's always possible that a hotfix could be deployed to eliminate it at some point, so use it (responsibly) while you can to ensure the reward of your dreams becomes a reality.
