Rapper and noted cryptocurrency fan Drake was feeling generous when he gave away 35 Bitcoins during a live stream.

If you’re not up to speed with your crypto conversion rates, that’s a cool $1 million – or £800,000.

Drake joined Stake.com’s live Twitch stream to give the Bitcoin away to fans around the world.

The rapper broadcast his night at the online casino, sharing live action across a number of games with the highlight being an $18million win on his lucky number 11 on the roulette table.

It was Drake’s first official live stream collaboration with the company.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t the artist’s best night on the tables. Overall, he lost a whopping $20million.

At least he was able to bring a smile to a number of fans.

Viewers were selected at random to receive gifts worth up to $75,000 in Bitcoin (2.6 BTC), as Drake video-called winners around the world, sharing the love with his fellow Canadians and as far afield as Argentina, India, Mexico, Brazil and Jordan. 

Drake recently launched a collaboration with Stake.com, the world’s largest cryptocurrency betting platform, which saw the rapper place a number of large sports wagers on the site – including a recent $2.6 million parlay win.

Stake.com have confirmed Drake will be live streaming and giving away crypto to fans on Twitch again soon.
