It’s no secret that Drake loves to gamble. The 6 God has been spotted playing online roulette a lot recently, with even courtside tickets to his beloved Toronto Raptors not getting in the way of his habit. All that time spent playing roulette has paid off, though, thanks to a brand new partnership.
On Tuesday (March 1), Drake announced he’ll be partaking in a live gambling event with Bitcoin casino and sports betting company Stake. The OVO rapper posted a trailer on Instagram that shows him and his crew living it up on vacation while playing roulette on the Stake website.
A date for the event has yet to be announced, but it’ll feature one special twist: Drake will be giving away all of his gambling winnings to his fans.
“It was inevitable. Drake and @stake have come together,” he wrote on Instagram. “I am going to be announcing a date for an upcoming live event where I play to win some real money and give it all to you because what’s better than sharing the love with my people. Stay tuned for details.”

Drizzy has been putting up a lot of money on Stake in recent months, winning anywhere from $354,000 up to $7 million on a single roulette wheel spin. A screenshot of his Stake account — under the username “DeepPockets6” — revealed he’s wagered over $1 billion since joining the website in December 2021.
Last month, the Certified Lover Boy bet $1.3 million on Super Bowl LVI, including $500,000 CAD on the Los Angeles Rams to win. He also put up $500,000 CAD on Odell Beckham Jr. catching a touchdown during the big game.
