- Drake lost close to $200,000 gambling at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City.
- Nothing brings out the competitiveness in celebrities like gambling, and Drake has laid large wagers on sports before.
I don’t know about you, but I love a good gambling story. And from Gilbert Arenas to Phil Mickelson, if there is one thing we have learned here at The Action Network, it is that athletes and celebrities love to wager on sports.
Which brings me to our latest gambling story, involving October’s very own, Drake.
According to Page Six, Drizzy had an eventful weekend.
Hours after taking the stage in Philadelphia for an “Aubrey & the Three Migos” tour stop, the rapper arrived in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
After a short set at the club, Drake decided to gamble at the hotel’s casino.
That was music to the house’s ears, so of course the casino accommodated the rapper and his crew inside a private high-roller area.
Drake then gambled away nearly $200,000 throughout the night.
Once a gambler, always a gambler, so we know this isn’t the first time Drake has wagered a large sum of money.
Earlier this year, the 6 God lost 10K to his buddy, rapper Quavo, on a single half-court shot:

Before that, he beat Quavo on a big bet in the national title game, when he took Alabama to beat Georgia:

Drake also lost $60,000 to French Montana on an NBA Finals bet a few years ago, when he took the Warriors to beat the Cavs.
Don’t hate the player, hate the game.
Drake is out here gambling and living his best life. I say, play on, playa!
