Drake has made a name for himself placing big bets on all types of sporting events and gambling, which have long been among the rap star’s favorite pastimes. Now he’s looking to use his love for the luck of the draw as an opportunity to spread his good fortune with the announcement of ‘Drake on Stake’, a live event in partnership with Canadian online betting platform Stake.
Champagne Papi shared the news with his followers via a promotional clip for the event, which has yet to receive an official date. “It was inevitable,” the Certified Lover Boy wrote in the caption. “Drake and @stake reunited.”
“I will be announcing a date for an upcoming live event where I play to win real money and give it my all because what could be better than sharing the love with my people [money emoji] stay tuned for more details.
The upcoming “Drake on Stake” event is far from the first time the rapper has made headlines when it comes to gambling. Last month, he reportedly won the equivalent of $2 million in Bitcoin after placing multiple bets on the Los Angeles Rams and his friend Odell Beckham Jr. in their Super Bowl game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He’s also not averse to taking bets from his buddies, as he collected a significant amount of money from Migos member Quavo after Alabama’s loss to Quavo’s hometown Georgia Bulldogs in the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship.
