Rap sensation Drake lost out on $1m even though he’d bet on Argentina to beat France and win the 2022 World Cup.
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.
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 went into penalties that saw Argentina defeat France 4-2.
Despite his financial loss, Drake can find comfort in the fact that his infamous curse appears to be broken, as he backed the winning side.
