Drake Wins $1.5M in Bitcoin After Betting on Super Bowl
Drake has pocketed more than $1.5 million in Bitcoin after placing a series of crypto bets during the Super Bowl.
The rapper successfully predicted that the Los Angeles Rams would win the final outright — with the team securing a thrilling 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals thanks to a last-minute touchdown.
He had wagered $471,500 on the outcome of the game, receiving a payout of $711,000.
Drake also placed two bets related to Odell Beckham Jr — one predicting that the star athlete would score at least one touchdown, and another that he would exceed 62.5 receiving yards. He had staked $393,000 on each bet.
Beckham Jr ended up scoring a touchdown in the first quarter of the game — delivering a profit of $844,000 for Drake — but the A-lister missed out on $711,000 because Beckham Jr bowed out after 52 receiving yards with a knee injury.
The rapper had used Stake in order to place his bets, which allows deposits to be made using Bitcoin, Ether and Dogecoin.
