GTA ONLINE SESSIONS: ILL-GOTTEN GAINS PART ONE FEATURING FUNHAUS + LUI CALIBRE + LAZLOW
To kick off the ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Part 1 Event Weekend we were joined on the official Rockstar Broadcast Event livestream by Adam Kovic, Bruce Greene, James Willems, Lawrence Sonntag and Sean “Spoole” Poole – collectively known as FUNHAUS. Rockstar Broadcast veteran Lui Calibre happened to be visiting the FUNHAUS offices that day and joined in the festivities as a special surprise guest to put Lazlow and the Rockstar Broadcast Team to the test. Check out the vid above to see some choice highlights.

#illgottengains1 SNAPMATIC WINNERS
Photographers were quick off the mark in taking imaginative Snaps inspired by and featuring content from the ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Update: Part One. Having scoured Social Club for the best, we're pleased to present our favorite selections here, each of whom receives GTA$1M. We've also included a few honorable mentions - great work to all for doing such a bang up job showing off all their spoils, including rides, weapon skins and everything in between.
Snapmatic Art's quaid86 may have been around the world on the new Luxor Deluxe but by the looks of that eponymous "Red Carpet" of blood, he's the one doing the player hating. Extra style points for rocking the fresh leather fur.
Hell bent in leather. missnxkolette knows it's all in the details as she perfectly captures her pistol's Yusuf Amir Luxury Finish - getting the light to shine on her ".50" piece just right.
We recently recognized zebfar's talent for cinematic adaptations and now we are proud to welcome zeb to the illustrious hall of Snapmatic contest winners for this brilliant entry, "Gulls." Using the magic of the Creator, zebfar captured this flock of
seagulls Stirlings in repose atop Mount Gordo.
- Heavy is the head that wears the crown. Snapography's eddieltu took a photo portrait of silverfox1 having a laid-back smoke aboard the Luxor Deluxe.
