With GTA 5 Online Heists coming soon to Windows PC, there have been rumors surrounding the upcoming Casinos DLC.

The only reason PC owners are not already playing Online Heists is because the Windows version of GTA 5 has yet to see the light of day. Online Heists is already available for console owners on the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

As Rockstar confirmed, the release date for GTA V on PC is April 14. That's about one and half years since Grand Theft Auto V started hitting shelves.

Happily though, Rockstar did promise that Online Heists will be included in the PC version as confirmed in their latest TV spot trailer. Another reason why PC owners should be looking forward to the GTA V PC release is because the game runs at 60 FPS in 4K resolution. This information was based on recent PC Gamer article detailing a recent Rockstar benchmark test conducted with an Intel i7 videocard.

Meanwhile, known videogame leaker Funmw2 tweeted that the fabled Casinos DLC will have four mini games that will include Blackjack, Poker, Roulette, and Slot. Keep in mind that the Casinos DLC is content that is separate from Online Heists.

Casino rumors began as early as late 2013 with the release of the infamous audio file describing casinos content before developed for Grand Theft Auto 5. Naturally, Rockstar has yet to confirm whether this gambling feature is to be included in GTA V. However, the game developer has surprised players in the past with special release DLC content. GTA fans will need to wait for more word from Rockstar Games.

So far, there have only been five missions available for Online Heists. Those include The Fleeca Job, The Prison Break, The Human Labs Raid, Series-A Funding, and The Pacific Standard Job. An excellent description of each of these missions can be found here.

Please note that only one player can serve as team leader. That player must have at least rank 12 in GTA online, and own an upscale apartment. He or she is also expected to bear the cost of all initial expenditures. After a heist is complete, leaders usually get the lion's share of the final take while other team members get smaller payouts. All crew members are free to come and go at any time. Each heist team is comprised of four players including the leader.
