Drake hosts second stream
Canadian rap superstar and businessman Drake made gambling history again, this time losing $17 million in 10 minutes and netting $8.5 million in the session.
Drake, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, saw his brutal losses come during a second sponsored stream on Twitch Monday night with gaming company Stake, its new partner. At the event, the OVO founder also gave away $1 million with personalized video calls to lucky viewers in Canada, Brazil, England and other countries.
Stake confirmed that Drake will return shortly after the event to host future events via Twitter:
Drake’s night got off to a warm start, with the perennial hit chart winning $12.96 million and $11.95 million in bets. He then called in fellow rapper French Montana to join him in celebrating his huge wins.
“You know what that deserves?” said Drake cheering for the camera. “And I have my special guest in the building, sit down. Ladies and gentlemen, I am here with my brother, my twin sister, my lookalike, Montega.”
however, his luck soon failed him and he ended the night with just $1,879
At one point during the night, under the alias “Deep Pockets,” Drake reached an account balance of nearly $27.2 million, nearly 3.2x the amount he started the night with. However, his luck soon failed him and he ended the night with just $1,879 in his account.
The most brutal piece of the stream came at minutes 56-66 when the hitmaker lost a cool $17 million. He ultimately failed to regain his fortune and ended the night on a somber note.
Gambling on Twitch
Drake’s early winnings took him into uncharted territory, setting new records beyond those of gambling streaming giant Trainwreck, who won $3.75 million earlier this year from two spins of a roulette wheel.
The Drake’s Stake-sponsored streams were rewarding for viewers, with $1 million in prizes given away in both sessions. However, the man himself has not had the same luck and has now lost a total of $28.5 million.
slots was the 12th most viewed category
Gaming streams have been booming on Twitch lately, thanks to the influence of pioneers like the two mentioned above. According to Twitch data from July 5-11, slots was the 12th most watched category, for the video games Call of Duty: Warzone and Dead by Daylight, among others.
Stake’s entry into the Twitch sphere, especially with such a popular partner, makes its popularity grow even further. Drake, who won $17.9 million on a single spin in May, is still looking for his first net positive stream.
