Regarding my chips,i have won 20m chips from AFK glitch, and i was not withdrawing any chips, because i have plenty of money, chips are intact, nothing has been taken away, and i can play all the games now at the Casino.
Cheers.

I personally have not been hit with it,

I earned 24m chips on char 2, and 49m chips on char 1, same account. Mostly afk for all of it.

I have not deposited any chips earned from betting with glitches. I have purchased all casino items currently locked behind chips.

:eek: Thats not good. Also if they use unlimited wheel in casino and they might be in trouble, confirm? I never use unlimited wheel in casino or afk betting money horse or gambling. Because I know R* sensitive.

-Both characters on the Account ARE affected :confused: that's sound serious.

I'm speculating based on what people are reporting that it may be related to the proportion of winning money gotten versus the money lost in betting.

I don't think it's related to being afk because you are by definition not afk when running a macro since you are giving controller input to the game.

The won/lost money proportion could be based on a time window, for example a 24 hr time period. It could also be lifetime earnt/lost in casino.

It would make sense for r* to put a "reasonable winnings" limit and ban for 7 days when exceeded. That would allow then to account for any undiscovered bugs and limit the damage while the bug is active. As the bug is made public, they will have time to hotfix it when many of the exploiters are banned temporarily.

There could also be more fine-grained checks such as winning too much from one type of activity (horse vs poker etc). But if I were implementing it I would probably settle for a global casino winnings calculator. This way of thinking aligns with the way you are banned from all casino activities, not just one type.

If this hypothesis is true, you would be able to launder your money by playing a low-house-advantage game for a while, and on avg win about 45% of the time, because it would decrease the global proportion of winnings vs losses. So basically go to black jack or roulette and put a lot of money in circulation, bet 10m and hopefully win like 9m back so you end up only a bit below your starting balance. And obviously do it before proceeding to win so much that you are banned.

This is a very interesting theory....
Do we know what information R* can monitor or access?
Do we think they can see a "play-by-play" I.E. every bet or hand, or is it more a cumulative total per play session I.E. player sits at blackjack table #5. win $10k lose $12k


hmm...If your theory holds true, we could potentially avoid a ban and milk the living [email protected]$ out of the next casino glitch.. Because we all know it will come.

I can say with some confidence that they don't save individual hands or gamble sessions in the back end, but the local game instance could still analyze it at run time of course.

Update:

I just got hit with the "feature not available" alerts during my last run of afk overnight.

After the touchpad hotfix on ps4.
No wipes, just cant access any equipment in the casino.

It lets me use the daily wheel

I get the feeling its about how much you cash in, I got banned after cashing in about 30 m but others who havnt cashed in are still going upto 70-80m without ban. My opinions is it's best to go nuts with it get 200m chips then cash them all in knowing your gonna get a ban and spend it before they wipe it all.

Been doing the horse races for about a week now, old method and new. I may be being overcautious but here is what I do:

Draw out my 50k chips, go on the horses to 500k. Deposit 400k, throw rest in slots (had a handful of decent wins, hit 1.25m twice) also locking myself out of getting more chips for a while. I go off and do other things, Nightclub promotion etc., come back and repeat. I mix my horses so not always betting on the same one, and I don't do afk stuff. I then spend whatever money I have deposited.

I don't think I go to the level as most here, only done the horses for about 15 million total. No issues.

I put 20% of all horse winnings in slots as mentioned. I think of it as money laundering and sometimes I even turn a profit, those 1.25m wins mixed in with all the horsey wins, I feel make things harder to spot. Who knows?

I've made well over 100m from horse racing now. Yet to be banned. Keep your actual playtime higher than your gambling time. Pretty sure ban is anti addiction feature for all those addicted gamblers out there.

No bans, 18 million in chips on main, about 10 million on 2nd character. All Chip'd items purchased on both. I skipped the horse race glitch... I made more money faster playing blackjack and quitting the losing hands.

I've made 30 million off the casino. Mostly from quitting out of table games. I think you may be right J jammy420 , I haven't cashed in more than 1.5 million chips at a time. My friends and I had no idea a casino ban existed until I saw people talking about it on here. Dat sucks

I've got over 40M in chips but i haven't turned anything in out of knowledge that they'll do these things. I'd say a safe route some people should consider is saving chips for when they just don't have **** left in their account. Then take out small incraments of the chips every hour or so. Just my thoughts.

Was banned a week ago around 43 mil. Only horse betting full on for 2x night and 1x a night/ workday in on go. Did payout after winning because i was scared for a wipe and bought all kind of stuff (new on pc and miss my PS4 money)

Was unbanned on monday and just started the script again for this night. I am now gonna try to leave all the money in the casino to see if i can get a higher number. I am doing a solo dupe in the evening so i am really trying to get on Rockstars radar i guess but we will see.

A friend made it to 53 mil with payouts of 5 mil and later on 2 mil with at least an hour in between before he got casino banned.

Out of curiousity, has anyone actually been banned for quitting hands on table games, like Blackjack?

I haven't really milked the casino hard but I always just play Blackjack in the Penthouse, get around 1-2mil in chips over an hour or two and cash out. I've never received a ban from doing this or quitting the wheel.

I've only really seen people talking of bans when it comes to the AFK/Macro glitches. Maybe R* are able to tell when you're connected to a computer instead of just playing through the console or could be using some kind of logger to see if there's any consistent pattern of button presses over a set period of time? Just a speculation though.

The casino and me missing doing glitches got me back into GTA Online, now we're getting a 7 day ban from the actual casino.
What the hell, R*.

Please leave as much detail as possible:
-Did you deposit Chips? How much?
-Did you afk for long periods? How long?
-Did you Machine hop, or session hop?

Only made 10m in the casino from various methods, mostly blackjack, no AFKing.
Deposited 100-200k @ each time, received the kick after winning on the inside track one too many times which is why I'm now here on these very forums.
No Ban or Warnings.
Also new to the game if that makes a difference at all (haven't played in years).

Thank you for your input. At this stage in the new anti-cheat system, every detail matters until we can understand the mechanics better.

More than welcome, wish I had more to offer but will update if anything changes.

Might try out the inside track glitch periodically and see if I get away with it, anything else seems a bit risky aside from Blackjack.
