Although Argentina won the 2022 World Cup, Canadian rapper Drake still lost his $1million bet placed on the South American team to defeat France.
In a video posted on Twitter the day before Argentina battled France, Drake was seen picking the Lionel Messi-led side to win the match. Drake reportedly lost his money thanks to the rules on the betting platform.
According to Fox News, the issue was that Drake “bet in a market where extra time isn’t counted and the result is determined based on the score after 90 minutes of play.
As at 90 minutes full-time at the World Cup finals on Sunday in Qatar, Argentina and France were on a 2-2 draw, before playing extra-time were they both levelled at 3-3 and eventually going into penalties that saw Argentina defeat France 4-2.
Had Drake’s bet paid off, the singer would’ve walked away with $2.75 million, a win of $1.75 million.
Also in November, Drake lost $2million after placing a bet that Israel Adesanya would beat Alex Pereira in a UFC fight, which unfortunately Adesanya lost.
