Inside the wild wins and losses of Drake’s sports betting history

Drake is a high-flying chart-topping casino boss.

So much so that the 35-year-old rapper has the top honor for high rollers.

“Drake is a famous whale,” professional sports bettor Bill Krackomberger told The Post. “He’s one of the most sought-after players in casino marketing departments. I saw him at Aria and he was betting $200,000 a spin on roulette.”

In fact, the musician puts enough money into action — through sports betting and gambling in the pit — Krackomberger said that “his piece is worth $100,000 in promotional chips to walk through the door.”

Drake is no doubt basking in the glory of his $1 million bet that Israel Adesanya would win his UFC fight last Saturday night. But don’t feel too bad for the house. Adesanya was such a favorite that according to the odds offered by FanDuel, the sky-high bet paid out a relatively modest $222,000, although Drake would have given up a cool million had he lost.

But with a net worth of about $150 million, Drake — who keeps fans updated on his game antics via posts on Instagram where he credits @champagnepapi — can clearly afford to spit big bucks. Last May, he lost more than $250,000 at the Spanish Grand Prix betting that Charles Leclerc would take it all. But the Formula 1 driver from Monaco lost power on lap 27 – and Drake lost his money.

At the Super Bowl, he had better luck and bet $393,000 that the Rams would win. He then gambled $314,000 on a mixed sports parlay where he needed to win the Nets, the Bluejays and the Mavericks, but it fell apart early on when the Nets lost to the Celtics. But Drake hit it big by betting $159,000 on the Warriors to win the 2022 Western Conference. When they did, it netted him $800,000.

Considering that last May Drake claimed to have won more than $2.6 million on an accumulator picking winners for the Stanley Cup and NBA Playoffs, it’s easy to rank him as the winner for to see this year. But those are just the bets he wants us to see. And it doesn’t include the $20 million he lost playing roulette on Twitch; However, the gambling was conducted through Stake.com, a gambling site that Drake has a sponsorship deal with.

As Krackomberger told The Post, “Everyone loves to brag about sports betting, even if they end up losing players. They like to show wins and bad beats [bets that they came close to winning but lost]. It’s part of the human psyche and Drake is just as prone to it as anyone.”
