When the Diamond Casino and Resort first opened, players discovered a particularly lucrative GTA Online Inside Track glitch which could be used to win the maximum payout while only placing the minimum bet on the race. This opened a shortcut for racking up chips in the GTA Online casino with very little risk to your existing funds, and although this GTA Online horse racing glitch was easy to perform, it quickly became too good to be true. As of Wednesday August 7, 2019, Rockstar applied a hotfix to remove the GTA Online Inside Track glitch from the game, as the cursor no longer moves down to Place Bet while holding the X/A button. This stopped the method from being used in GTA Online and no workaround has been found for it since, but we will leave all of the information here for reference.

Note: this glitch has now been patched out of GTA Online 

The method for activating the GTA Online Inside Track glitch is very simple, and just involves the following steps. First, head to the Inside Track area of the casino and interact with a terminal, then choose the Single Event option. Next, select the horse on the left you want to bet on – usually the top two options are most likely to win, and therefore actually give you a return on your bet, but as always the outcome is completely random. Finally, move the cursor over to the increase bet arrow, press and hold X (PS4) or A (XBO, PC pad) then immediately tap down on the d-pad to move the cursor to Place Bet while still holding X/A.

The race will automatically start and you'll be charged your 200 chips bet, but keep holding X/A until the end of the race and your bet amount will secretly increase in the background. If your horse loses, you'll only have lost your original small bet, but if your horse comes in first then you'll receive the maximum winnings – which even at Evens will result in 20,000 chips being deposited to your account! To summarise the GTA Online Inside Track glitch method:

  1. Select your horse to bet on – 1 or 2 are most likely to win
  2. Press and hold X/A on the increase bet arrow
  3. Immediately tap d-pad down while still holding X/A to start the race
  4. Keep X/A held until the end of the race and see if you win
  5. Repeat

Are there any risks involved with using the GTA Online Inside Track glitch?

As with any glitch or exploit in an online game, there are certain risks with using the GTA Online Inside Track glitch, especially if you do it to excess. Rockstar have the ability to ban users from accessing the casino games if they detect excessive or irregular betting patterns, and a number of players have reported this happening to them. However, a lot of them were using bots or macros to speed up the process, which may have made them easier to detect.

Essentially, you're not actually hacking the game, so as long as you don't go over the top with your casino chip harvesting then you shouldn't run into any problems. That being said, you are using an exploit to earn more chips than you should be entitled to, so don't be surprised if your use of the GTA Online Inside Track glitch leads to a temporary ban from casino game activities. As with all GTA Online exploits and glitches, this will eventually be patched out by Rockstar, so make use of it (responsibly) while you still can.
