Why is there always such a media storm every time a new version of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is released? Whatever the reason is does nothing to dampen the popularity of this computer game series which is probably the best third person shooter drive game series ever created, in total over 150 million copies of the games have been sold.
While most GTA releases are based on a single city, generally and American city though on one occasion London was also featured, GTA San Andreas is based on an entire state. The state is a mixture of California and Nevada and features three main cities: Los Santos which is meant to be Los Angeles, Las Venturas which is modelled on Las Vegas, and San Fierro which is based on San Francisco.
The game features CJ, full name Carl Johnson. It begins with his return from Liberty City, which is taken to be New York and he subsequently becomes embroiled in a fairly convoluted story revolving round gang wars, corrupt police, rivalry between Triad and Mafia owned casinos, drugs and a wish by CJ to restore his career in the music business.
Casinos are very important to the plot. Not only is CJ a partner of one of them, the Four Dragons, which is owned by members of Hong Kong Triads, but in this casino as well as The Casino Floor and Caligula’s Palace is also possible to play casino games similar to those you’d find at sites like www.gamingclub.com/au/online-roulette as well as horseracing and pool in order to build up a bankroll that can be used in other parts of the game. There are also ten other casinos that feature in various ways in the story, though they are not available for gaming.
Players can also borrow money from the accessible casinos, but generally without the attention to repay it and with the attention of dealing with the aftermath by despatching the heavies that are sent to collect and stealing their cash.
