The Same Day Drake Lost His Barcelona Bet He Won $12.2 Million at Roulette

Gambling is one of the world’s most popular hobbies with millions of people that participate in it all around the world. This is no surprise since throughout history we could see many incarnations of games on which people placed stakes on. So much so that even one of the largest historic monuments was a spot where people battled and thousands gambled on the winner, that being the Colosseum.

But when you think of gambling nowadays the first thoughts that come into the minds of many are casinos and sportsbooks. That often comes with a stigma that the best and most luxurious casinos are only meant for celebrities and rich people. Be it due to the excellent service or the list of the best poker songs they play on repeat many people have grasped this opinion. But the truth is that anyone can come to the casino and experience all of this while playing all their favorite casino games.

Furthermore, many gamblers prefer to play their favorite casino games from the comfort of their own homes. And many do this thanks to online casinos and their services. Even some of the world’s most popular celebrities like Drake play on these online platforms. 

Drake’s big win on Roulette after losing the Barcelona bet

The Canadian rapper on one day turned a bad day after losing a £500,000 bet on Barcelona and Arsenal for both to win. Losing these bets cost the rapper upwards of 3.9 million Canadian dollars. Anyone would be devastated after such a loss but Drake took the change and channeled all his luck into Roulette. Where he won over 12 million Canadian dollars in just one spin. As the ball hit the black 11 he and two of his friends celebrated the big win. The odds of this happening were shockingly low but luck smiled upon the rapper that day. 

This however was not the first time Drage dwelled into gambling, he is known for making waves in the online gambing industry since becoming an official ambassador for some online casinos. His gambling track record holds about 81.1 million Canadian dollars in total wins. These wins include sports betting wagers on American leagues like the NFL and NBA and international sports like the UFC and Formula 1. Also including the bets placed on online casinos he frequents. With some of his biggest wins actually being live-streamed during his partnerships.

The rapper at one point even donated 100 thousand Canadian dollars to a female Twitch streamer that was gambling at the time. The donation went towards the blackjack the streamer played following this where it was later clarified that Drake donated the money. During the blackjack stream as the rapper watched, unfortunately, the streamer lost all of the funds in a stroke of bad luck.

Drake’s future within the Gambling Industry

Drake obviously has a deep interest in the industry just by his extraordinary gambling habits. The household name is not shy and regularly posts his gambling activity, where just in 2022 he shared a snap of himself playing live high-stakes roulette while courtside at a Toronto Raptors game. And just 10 days after the release of ‘’Hotline Bling’’ he won a massive 3.7 million payout from a 2.2 million stake on Liverpudlian UFC dop Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann

As Drake’s interest and place in the gambling industry grow more and more prominent. We can only wonder what kind of development we will see, be it more big wins or even what many are speculating, Drake opening up his own online casino. This would solidify him in the industry and allow him to explore ideas he is passionate about.
