In this year’s Super Bowl, A-list rapper Drake made headlines for placing seven bets worth a total of $965 million picking a winner for Football’s most-awaited game of the year. While some may be shocked at the amount of money he gambled, what’s even more surprising is that he won big.
In the Super Bowl game that Drake bet on, the Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in a closely contested match by a score of 38-35.
In addition to his bet on the outcome of the Super Bowl, Drake also placed several other wagers, including a $50,000 bet that Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback, would score a touchdown during the game.
He also bet on Juju Smith-Schuster to score the Chiefs’ first touchdown of the match.
The fact that Drake bet correctly a streak of sports-related bets comes as a surprise to some. “Champagne Papi” is notorious for his usual bad takes on sports betting. The rapper became an online meme after a series of bad takes on sports bets in MMA and soccer. These bad takes made him lose up to a million dollars in 2021 and 2022.
While Drake may have had some bad luck with his sports bets in the past, he has certainly shown some skill when it comes to Football.
Drake Bet On “Stake” Receiving His Winnings in Bitcoin
His recent big win on a cryptocurrency-based online casino called Stake, where he correctly predicted the outcome of the final. The rapper got over 300 BTC in the bag for his correct picks in the match.
In fact, as previously reported by CCO, Drake used his Stake partnership in order to win $35 million in crypto in the previous year.
Stake is a cryptocurrency-based betting platform that allows its users to waver in crypto for bets in slot machines, sports, table games, and live casino games.
As one of the world’s most famous celebrities is bound to make the crypto-gambling market more mainstream in the near future with the push he is giving.
Due to its anonymity and fast transactions crypto-based casinos are gaining traction over regular betting websites. And as more people become comfortable with digital currencies, we can expect to see more growth in this area.
Overall, Drake’s big win on Stake is a testament to the growing popularity of cryptocurrency and online gambling. It will be interesting to see how this trend develops in the years to come, and whether more celebrities and high-profile individuals will start turning to crypto-based casinos in the future.
