But Drake (35) was very lucky! The rapper has an ongoing partnership with Canadian online casino Stoke. Appropriately, he tried his hand at gambling himself – and cleared up a lot.
After initially small amounts, the musician suddenly bet 300,000 dollars on the black eleven in roulette. A friend caught a video of how the ball actually landed on the number he had picked and Drake danced jubilantly through his house. Because he had won 35 times in one fell swoop, that is $ 10.5 million.
Drake donates over a million dollars of profits
But he doesn’t keep all the money for himself. The rapper has decided to share part of his profits for a good cause – “because it gives good karma”. He donated around one million dollars in Bitcoins to the charity of his friend LeBron James (37). The basketball star’s foundation, the LeBron James Family Foundation, supports underprivileged students, among other things.
But that’s not all. Drake also had a big surprise for a single mom and her son Michael, a high school basketball player. He handed her $100,000 in cash at a dinner in his hometown of Toronto, “because you’re the hardest working woman in the world!” (cth/bsn)
