Drake wins over $1MILLION after huge Super Bowl Bitcoin bet

DRAKE scored big after winning a series of Super Bowl LVI bets he placed just days before the game.

The "Certified Lover Boy" artist placed three separate bets on Thursday totaling more than $1.3 Million in Bitcoin.

The bets included $600,000 that the Los Angeles Rams would win the Super Bowl, $500,000 that Odell Beckham Jr. would earn a touchdown and $500,000 that he'd run 62.5 receiving yards.

The rapper shared details of the bets on a series of screenshots he posted to his Instagram account.

Drake used the online better app called Stake, which accepts cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Doge, to place his wagers.

"All bets are in on the family," Drake, whose Instagram handle is @Champagnepapi, wrote in his post's caption.

The rapper and the talented wide receiver have been friends for years, with Beckham appearing in Drake's music video for "Laugh Now Cry Later" in 2020. 

According to ESPN, when Beckham was asked to comment on the bets, he laughed and said: "Man, I've got to come through for him!"

"Ultimately, bro, I just want to be able to hold that trophy up, look your brothers in the eyes like, 'Man, we did it.' And just feel that joy," Beckham said, according to ABC News.

"Honestly, I feel like if I play my game, I catch everything that comes my way, I make the plays, I stay locked in, one play at a time, all of those things are very possible," Beckham added. 

Indeed Odell played his game, scoring one touchdown before even halftime.

In the end, the Rams took the victory from the Cincinnati Bengals, winning 23-20, while Drake took home a profit of about $1 million.
