Global superstar, Drake, has become widely recognised in the gambling industry due to his huge wagers and hugely successful partnership with Stake.com – but what are Drake’s biggest casino bets?

Drake’s Biggest Casino Bets

As previously mentioned, Drake has made the headlines for placing huge bets through Stake.com and these tend to come via sports bets.

However, the Canadian musician has also wagered large sums of money through casino betting – before and during his partnership with Stake.com

Only a seven days prior to his agreement with Stake, Drake placed over $100,000 at an ARIA Casino – on just one spin at a high-stake roulette wheel.

Roulette appears to be the superstar’s favorite casino game, usually ignoring other popular games like blackjack, baccarat and slots.

During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Drake reportedly purchased a Jacob & Co watch that had a fully functioning roulette wheel within the bezel – costing around $620,000.

In 2022, he continued to show his huge casino wagers, receiving a roulette payout of $350,000 – earning around $215,000 worth of profit.

Drake kicked off 2022 in style with a $354,000 roulette payout, taking home $215,000 on top of his original stake.

However this was not his biggest win during that year, as the Toronto-born musician made over $12 million on a single roulette spin.

His bets to come with some skepticism, as they tend to be through Stake.com in which he is partnered – meaning the bets may not be made with his money.

However, this partnership has brought a host of positive competitions for himself and other high-rolling gamblers, as Drake hosted several live stream events on the crypto casino.

The competition was named Drake vs Stake, and allowed Stake users across the globe to gain entry to Drake’s live roulette game.

He clinched his own winning wagers but also handed out a variety of Bitcoin bundles worth between $20,000 and $75,000 to those involved.

In the opening five events, Drake handed out over $1m worth of crypto to the players in his live streams and continued to make his own bets.

His first live stream even on Twtich with other celebrities started in May 2022, as he placed $500,000 on each roulette spin.

Lil Baby is among a host of rapers to have taken part, and before Drake began gambling with the rapper, the Canadian won $17.9 million by betting on black 11.

Black 11 appears to be his favorite number and on July 11th 2022, Drake and French Montana collaborated on the second Drake vs Stake.

This is where he achieved one of the biggest wins on Drake vs Stake, as the superstar picked up multiple eight-figure wins – totaling to a final accumulation of $24.9m.

However, it isn’t always wins with Drake, as he ended that same stream on $2,000 and managed to drop all the way down fro $27.2m.

Roulette may be his favorite, but Drake has seen success through other casino games – winning millions through online slot games.

While playing Hacksaw Gaming slot Dork Unit, Drake picked up $1m and during the Drake vs Stake events in 2023, he added $678,000 through Hacksaw and Wanted Dead or a Wild.
