It's a game that takes pride of place when you enter the Diamond Casino, and at busy times you'll see a queue of players waiting patiently for their chance to play, but were you aware that there's a GTA Online Lucky Wheel glitch where you can continue spinning until you land on your prize of choice, or even guarantee hitting the Podium Car every time? The wheel features a built-in 24 hour cooldown period to stop you spinning it again in the GTA Online Casino, meaning you'll have to wait a full day for another opportunity to win items including Chips, GTA$, RP, and of course the coveted Podium Car.

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.

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.

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 session and try again or back out to the single player game and start a new solo/invite only session.

With the Lucky Wheel starting in the correct location, enter the spinning minigame then hold the left stick diagonally up and left between the 10-11 o'clock position. Wait a couple of seconds then gently bring the stick down while still pushing left – 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 the angle you hold the stick and speed you move it downwards, but as before you can quickly quit the game if you don't land the 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.
