Drake has made a $1.15 million Super Bowl bet.

The 'God's Plan' hitmaker has put a massive stake on the Kansas City Chiefs beating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL showpiece game on Sunday (11.02.24), and if his prediction comes true, he could pocket more than $2.3 million.

Drake shared a photo of his big bet on Instagram and, referencing Taylor Swift's relationship with Chiefs' tight end Travis Kelce, he captioned his post: “I can’t bet against the swifties (sic)"

The 37-year-old rapper - who has an estimated net worth of $250 million - is no stranger to high-stakes gambling and in 2022, he lost $2 million after a flutter on a UFC bout when the result went the wrong way.

He had backed favourite Israel Adesanya to win against Alex Pereira in November that year, with the hope of netting himself $2.9 million, but the underdog won and took the UFC middleweight title following a technical knockout in the fifth round.

Earlier that year, the 'Hotline Bling' singer donated $1 million in Bitcoin to LeBron James' charity after a big roulette win.

Drake scooped a huge prize when gambling on Stake.com and he decided to spread the love to the pro basketball player's LeBron James Family Foundation, and he also donated $100,000 to a student's hard-working mother.

Speaking in an Instagram video, he said: "I had an incredible night last night playing roulette on Stake.

"Anytime I get blessed like that, I always think it’s good karma that needs to be transferred.

"So, I play for fun and I play in hopes that I can spread love always. So tonight, I’m doing a dinner with my brother [LeBron] … we’re doing a Lobos dinner tonight."

Speaking to LeBron, he added: "I'm going to, myself and Eddie from Stake, are going to dedicate $1 million to the I PROMISE School and I'm going to come and drop it off myself."

The pro basketball player replied: "Wow, wow, wow. I appreciate it. My kids are going to go crazy for that."

LeBron's foundation opened the I PROMISE School, which tries to help the most at-risk students and families in Akron, Ohio, in 2018.

Drake and LeBron also invited a student-athlete and basketball player called Michael and his mum over for dinner, and presented her with $100,000.

The musician said: "On behalf of me and my brother [LeBron] and Stake, we wanted to give you this, it's $100,000. Hopefully it makes this journey a little easier."
