Drake is a high-flying diagram clincher among gambling club supervisors.
To such an extent that the rapper, 35, has the most noteworthy assignment given out to hot shots.
“Drake is a superstar whale,”
elite athletics bettor Bill Krackomberger told The Post.
“He’s one of the most sought after card sharks by gambling club advertising divisions. I saw him at Aria and he was wagering $200,000 a twist at roulette.”
As a matter of fact, the performer sets sufficient cash in motion — by means of wagering sports and betting in the pit — said Krackomberger, that
“his play truly deserve $100,000 in special chips to stroll in the entryway.”
Drake is almost certainly relaxing in the brilliance of his $1 million bet that Israel Adesanya would win his UFC battle last Saturday night. In any case, don’t feel not good enough for the house. Adesanya was such a most loved that, as indicated by chances presented by FanDuel, the high as can be wagered paid a generally unobtrusive $222,000 despite the fact that Drake would have given up a cool million assuming he lost.
But with a net worth of some $150 million, Drake — who keeps fans abreast of his gambling capers via posts on Instagram where he goes by @champagnepapi — can clearly afford to spew big bucks. This past May, he dropped more than $250,000 on the Spanish Grand Prix, wagering that Charles Leclerc would take it all. But the Formula 1 racer from Monaco lost power on the 27th lap — and Drake lost his bucks.
He had better luck at the Super Bowl, betting $393,000 that the Rams would win. Then he blew $314,000 on a mixed-sports parlay bet in which he had the Nets, the Bluejays and and the Mavericks all in line to win, but it fell apart early when the Nets lost to the Celtics. But Drake hit big by betting $159,000 on the Warriors to win the 2022 Western conference. When they did, that earned him $800,000.
As Krackomberger told The Post,
“Everyone loves bragging about sports bets, even if they are losing players in the end. They like showing wins and bad-beats [bets that they came close to winning but lost]. It’s part of the human psyche and Drake’s as susceptible to it as anyone.”
