Drake was among NBA Finals bettors who celebrated winnings following the Denver Nuggets’ Game 5 victory at home Monday to win a title.
But the rapper’s winnings were likely stratospheric compared to others.
Drake revealed before Game 5 on his Instagram story he had $242,584 in Bitcoin on the Nuggets winning the Larry O’Brien Trophy.
Drake, who goes by “Champagne Papi” on Instagram, posted two more stories showing he was a happy man.
“Me and Eddie after Nuggets finally get me a sports win @stake,” Drake wrote with a Polaroid picture of Jokic and teammate Jamal Murray smiling.

Murray is also Canadian-born, so Drake’s next story was a still shot of the shooting guard after the victory with Canada’s national flag and “cash me” written in all capitals.
