While his personal favorite appears to be online roulette — playing from his laptop at home to even NBA games — Drake recently placed a $1.25 million bet, said to be in Bitcoin. The bets included the Los Angeles Rams winning the Super Bowl, as well as on his close friend and NFL star Odell Beckham Jr. scoring a touchdown.
“All bets are in on the family,” he wrote on Instagram ahead of the football showdown.
Following the Rams’ victory, Drake went on to receive his payout in CAD and Bitcoin, as previously reported by AfroTech.
With plenty of the virtual gambler’s time spent on Stake, the outlet now reports he’s working with the platform for the greater good.
In a joint Instagram post, Drake and Stake announced that they’ve officially teamed up for a live betting event. Similar to in his “God’s Plan” music video, he will be sharing wealth with others.
“It was inevitable. Drake and @stake have come together,” he shared via Instagram. “I am going to be announcing a date for an upcoming live event where I play to win some real money and give it all to you because what’s better than sharing the love with my people. Stay tuned for details.”

When looking over Drake’s wins in virtual gambling, attendees of the upcoming live event may rake in a fairly hefty bag. In only a time span of about three months, he’s won within the range of $354,000 up to $7 million on a single roulette wheel spin, according to the outlet.
The Canada-based Bitcoin casino and sports betting website was founded in 2017 and has since gone on to snag partnerships with companies including UFC.
