There's gold in the hills of Los Santos, and if you know where to look, the streets can be paved with that same gold. Money has always made the world go round in Grand Theft Auto, and when it comes to the chaos of GTA Online, that's never been more evident.

If we're not sticking up banks or taking on daring heists, we're splashing our real-world dollars on Shark Cards - all so our new whip can have the snazziest decals. GTA Online has been making money for over a decade, and even now, our quest to become the next Tommy Vercetti can be quite the grind.

GTA Online money glitches give you plenty of bang for your buck

GTA Online money glitches are nothing new, but as reported by YouTuber ByAlex98 (via Charlie Intel), there are two glitches currently running rife. While Rockstar is sure to patch them quickly, you can currently make the most of these exploits and fill your

The first method tells players to head to any Maze Bank ATM and deposit $1 million into their accounts as a tested amount. You can then trick the game by disconnecting your internet at the exact time you click deposit. This will cause a connection error that glitches the deposit.  

You're advised to do this with a LAN cable because of the precise timing, and note that the ATM has to display the "network error, transaction couldn't be completed" message to work. Exit the ATM, reconnect your internet and wait about four seconds before depositing the $1 million again. 

When you reconnect through the GTA Online Interaction Menu, you should have an extra $1 million in your account. Rinse and repeat. The second method is similar but involves the 24/7 Supermarket store in downtown Vinewood.

Follow these instructions to exploit the ATM bug:

  • Change your respawn position to "Last Location" in the interaction menu
  • Head inside the 24/7 Supermarket store in downtown Vinewood and use the ATM
  • Put all your money in the ATM, exit, and then withdraw ALL again using your mobile phone
  • Point your gun at the clerk, shoot him as soon as the Intimidation bar reaches its end, and he's taking the money out of the register
  • Shoot both registers and grab the money from the floor
  • Quickly deposit the money you withdrew and the money you just stole before the Police arrive
  • Re-connect to the session after the deposit. It has to be done before the Police arrive
  • Respawn, point your gun at the clerk and kill him before he reaches the register. Steal the same amount you deposited into the ATM before reconnecting

The question on everyone's lips is whether Rockstar will finally call time on GTA Online when GTA 6 releases in 2025. We obviously don't see the company moving forward without some online component. After all, GTA Online has helped GTA V become the most profitable entertainment product of all time.

Instead, players are worried that Rockstar will follow Activision's example and shutter the old GTA Online like it did with the OG Warzone. Call of Duty fans were furious that their years of grinding went to waste, and while we got a much glossier Warzone 2.0, there are fears that GTA Online could follow suit.

While GTA Online has evolved a lot over the years, there are rightful concerns that its foundations won't be able to support the new-gen punch of GTA 6. Some think it's about time we got a new iteration of GTA Online to play, but so far, Rockstar hasn't confirmed what its plans for this online playground are. 

Much like questions over GTA 6's potential PC release and whether the game will be delayed, the future of GTA Online is all anyone's asking about right now. In the meantime, GTA Online is set to keep rolling out its updates and rinsing us for every penny.
