In an exhilarating turn of events, Drake has emerged victorious, both financially and superstitiously, as he shatters the notorious “Drake curse” while raking in over $1 million in winnings by accurately predicting the outcome of Super Bowl LVIII.
Drizzy, the Toronto-based rapper, made waves by placing a staggering $1.15 million wager on the Kansas City Chiefs to triumph over the San Francisco 49ers in the highly anticipated Super Bowl showdown on February 11.
With odds of 2.04 in his favor, his bold bet translated into a substantial $2.346 million windfall upon the Chiefs’ triumph.
Drawing attention to his hefty bet, Drake took to social media, notably referencing pop sensation Taylor Swift and her devoted fanbase. Swift, who is presently romantically linked with Chiefs’ tight end Travis Kelce, seemed to inspire Drake’s confidence.
In an Instagram post showcasing his betting slip, Drake playfully remarked, “I can’t bet against the swifties @stake.”
Drake’s gamble paid off handsomely as the Chiefs secured a hard-fought victory over the 49ers, clinching a 25-22 win in a nail-biting finish.
Adding to the excitement, Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes earned the coveted MVP title for the second consecutive year. True to his bet, Drake reaped a remarkable $1.196 million in profits from the exhilarating match.
Following the epic game, the revered artist took to his Instagram Stories to share a jubilant video capturing his celebration of the lucrative win, albeit with a humorous mishap involving a broken plate amidst the revelry.
“Thank you @stake.eddie, see ya when I see ya,” Drake wrote alongside the video, acknowledging Stake’s co-founder, Eddie, in a gesture of appreciation.
Drake’s triumphant Super Bowl victory not only adds to his legacy as a savvy bettor but also serves as a symbolic moment, dispelling the lingering myth of the “Drake curse” once and for all.
With his strategic gamble and unwavering allegiance to Taylor Swift, Drake proves yet again that he’s a force to be reckoned with both on and off the stage.
