Microtransactions feature heavily in GTA online, with the games using a well-known in-game currency referred to by players as 'shark cards'. These cash cards are optional but allow players to buy downloadable content and are purchased using real-life money.Cards vary in price, with each named after different sharks e.g. Bull Shark (£5.99), Megalodon Shark (£64.99). The in-game currency that players can earn, and buy, is referred to as 'GTA Dollars' and these allow the player to buy vehicles, outfits, weapons and a wide range of content that can determine game performance and online social status. Whilst loot boxes are not used in the GTA franchise, there are games of chance and more direct gambling features included n GTA online. The biggest feature is the addition of the 'Diamond Casino and Resort' which players can visit and interact with just like a real-life casino, spending GTA Dollars, which they can purchase with real money. This follows the game's desire to become a realistic role-playing game where players can act out real-life experiences in-game, including visiting strip clubs and shops.
