GTA Online: How to make fast money solo, Heists, in-game events, & Casinos

Getting through the introduction of GTA Online used to leave you with around GTA$ 200,000 in your bank account. The new intro gives you $4,000,000 to get started with property and bonuses but very little will be left once you make your initial purchases.

It's a great start, but you'll learn quite quickly that things cost a lot of money in GTA Online. Thankfully, there are ways you can maximise your earnings and make money fast and certain things that you can invest in to help grow your overall earnings over time.

Here's everything you need to know - it isn't always about robbing banks...

Hit those Weekly boosted in-game events

Rockstar Games' Weekly Update for GTA Online always throws up a selection of in-game events and modes that offer additional GTA$ and RP. These aren't always the same from one week to the next and sometimes the bonuses are doubled - sometimes they're even more.

You can check out the latest Weekly Update for GTA Online here - however, it's also worth keeping an eye on Rockstar Games' social media accounts for the latest on any other seasonal changes to these bonuses.

One playlist to keep an eye on is the Adversary mode Motor Wars. This is a fantastic mode to earn money in as it is and you could come away with over GTA$ 100,000 if you win all three rounds in a match.

Knowing which activities are worth more is key

The time these take is the only thing to keep in mind - a match of Motor Wars takes around 20 minutes in total. When a triple-boost is enabled, you could earn around GTA$ 1,000,000 in under an hour!

Competing in Standard and Stunt Races in GTA Online is another great way to earn money - these are quicker, but they can also just be a little more fun to play. Motor Wars is intense.

Keep an eye on the current Twitch Prime Perks

If you subscribe to Amazon Prime, you're also entitled to Twitch Prime and because of this, you're entitled to the monthly GTA Online rewards that Rockstar makes available.

Each Twitch reward is usually an item or property + $1m or more in money. These are also available for Red Dead Redemption 2, so if you play both games online you could really be missing out!

If you have time, joining Heists is a no-brainer

If you want to skip all of the prep work, you can matchmake into heists. You of course need to rely on the party leader giving you a good cut and the team working well together, but this could be avoided if you have friends to play with.

The Diamond Casino Heist has proven popular with players so far

Regardless, replaying heists and exploring the different options you can take in each, a few million dollars can be made in just a few hours. Once you have the heists down to a tee, you can increase the difficulty to up the earnings also.

Increase your earnings through Passive Income

Once you start opening businesses through the Motorcycle Clubs and Nightclubs or if own a Bunker, you can begin to earn passive income. Set up your passive income by funding gunrunning or drug rings and once you have your product in place, everything else happens in the background.

You can take on missions to get the materials for your club to use rather than paying for them, but this can be time-consuming and risky.

When collecting 'products' for your club to sell, you will become visible to all players on the map who will be informed of what you're up to.

Realistically, your passive income will be around $80-120k an hour depending on upgrades and efficiency.
