Diamond Casino Heist vs. Cayo Perico: Which one is better in GTA Online?

Diamond Casino Heist


Players can either gather cash, artwork, gold, or diamonds in GTA Online's Diamond Casino Heist.

Diamonds are the most lucrative in terms of rewards. However, they are event-limited since they are only accessible for looting during the specified weeks determined by Rockstar Games. Their highest reward in GTA Online will be $3,619,000 when they become accessible.

If a player is unfortunate and receives the other three treasure categories, their earnings will be reduced. The highest payoff for gold is $2,585,000, while the maximum payments for cash and artwork are $2,115,000 and $2,350,000.

Cayo Perico Heist


One of the biggest advantages Cayo Perico has over Diamond Casino in GTA Online is that players can do it solo. As a result, a player efficiently completing it solo doesn't have to divide the loot between several parties.

The Cayo Perico Heist had a maximum payment of $4,570,600. Normally, a player would earn a little over $1 million every 10 minutes, but a strong RNG for secondary item spawning places can boost that amount.

There are five objectives that players have to complete when playing in hard mode, which are Sinsimito Tequila ($990,000), Ruby Necklace ($1,100,000), Bearer Bonds ($1,210,000), Pink Diamond ($1,430,000), and the Panther Statue ($1,900,000).

Artwork, cash, cannabis, cocaine, and gold are secondary goals. In terms of pay, gold is the best secondary goal, however, all secondary objectives spawn at random, making it less stable.



The Cayo Perico Heist is more efficient than the Diamond Casino Heist in terms of constant maximum payment.

It offers a roughly $1 million greater payoff, and the player gets a larger share of the final payout because it may be completed solo.
