Using the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch means you don't have to settle for the first prize you land on in the casino, and you can also follow a specific method to practically guarantee that you'll win the Podium Car, which most players will agree is the best reward available. There are a selection of desirable items to be won, including GTA Online new cars from the podium, GTA$, RP, and more, so you don't want to be kept waiting for the 24 hour cooling off period every time you give the wheel a spin. Thankfully there is a better way to approach this situation, to give you control over which prize you end up claiming.
Usually you'd have to accept 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 down to give it a spin, before getting ready for the next step. If you don't get the prize you want, quickly follow the usual procedure for your console or PC to close the game directly, rather than using the quit prompt within the game as this will save your progress automatically and prevent you from repeating the spin.
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 close the game and instead continue playing until the next autosave or quit through the game menu to secure your reward.
How to always win the Casino Podium Car with the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch
If you don't want to leave things to chance, there is a method you can use which pretty much guarantees you'll win the Podium Car every time. To set this up, you need the Lucky Wheel to be resting on the Clothing wedge two sections to the right of the Vehicle wedge, as pictured above. You can ensure this set up is in place by playing a solo or invite only online session, otherwise you'll need to hope that nobody else has already spun the wheel in your casino – if they have, find a new solo/invite only session and try again or back out to the single player game and start a new online session.
With the Lucky Wheel starting in the correct location, interact with it then wait four seconds from when the spin prompt appears before quickly moving the left stick. If done correctly, the Lucky Wheel will slowly rotate once and land on the Vehicle wedge, as shown in the gif above. You may need to experiment with your timing to get this working, but as before you can quickly quit the game if you don't land on the vehicle prize you're aiming for then reload for another go.
Are there any risks involved with using the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch?
Technically all you're doing here is pushing the stick a certain way or quitting the game, but using the GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch is still gaming the system in order to secure a higher value prize. 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 car or 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 since the launch of the casino, 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.
