Argentina defeated France in the FIFA World Cup today, and Drake won big as a result. It was a nail-biting game between the two soccer titans, going to extra time and a shootout. While France’s powerhouse Kylian Mbappé scored thrice, Argentina’s superstar Lionel Messi scored two of their seven total goals to secure the win. The Canadian artist bet $1 million on the Latin American country’s victory, and casino streamer Roshtein matched it for France.
“@roshtein my bet is in for tmrw @stake,” Drake wrote via Instagram on a screenshot of his bet. While both bet a million, Drake’s payout was $2,750,000, while Roshtein’s (real name Ishmale Schwartz) was $100,000 more. When Schwartz posted his bet, he wrote “Oui monsieur @champagnepapi vive la France @stake.”
While this ended up going great for the 6 God, many thought that he infected Argentina with the “Drake curse.” Moreover, he built a reputation for associating with teams that end up losing, even though there are always exceptions. However, it’s not hard to see why it’s become a thing. In October, Drake bet on FC Barcelona to beat Real Madrid, which was unsuccessful. The team even wore a special jersey as part of their Spotify partnership that featured the OVO owl.
