Drake struck gold at the roulette table once again this week after landing two $12m wins during one of his now famous #stakedrake online casino sessions.

But at one stage the “Know Yourself” singer questioned his luck in the game and suggested he “may have better luck on blackjack”.

The rapper, who earlier this year won $17m on a single spin, only to then lose $20m, was back spinning the online roulette wheel again with his entourage.

This time he had fellow music star French Montana betting alongside him, as Drake went big at the table.

He began the night with around $8.5m in the bank and early on won a cool $5.13m from a single bet on 10. Moments later the ball fell on the same number to land him a further $5.76m.

The biggest Drake casino win of the night came in around $12m

He was regularly wagering close to $1m a spin and his balance peaked at $27m. Towards the end of the night he won another huge windfall – this time nearly $12m – but by the end of the session was back down to just $1,879.

“And I got my special guest in the building, take a seat,” Drake said after his $12m win. “Ladies and gentlemen, I’m here with my brother, my twin, my lookalike Montega.”

Drake Casino Viewers Hit 200,000

Incredibly, Drake’s session was watched by more than 200,000 at its peak. The rapper streamed his gaming time on Twitch, while viewers were also able to watch him play via alternative streams.

Part of the #stakedrake idea is that fans play alongside the superstar and win randomly-allocated prizes along the way. At one stage he called a player from Sao Paulo, Brazil to inform her she’d won $25,000.

“You know what the goal is,” Drake said before the session. “We’re cracking today. We’re giving out a lot of bread. Shoutout to everybody in the chat. I hope everyone’s been blessed so far. Shout out to everybody tuning in across the world!”

“One of my favourite things to do in the world is to be with the people.”

Drake promised to take on another #stakedrake in the near future.
