I’ve never been able to relate to Drake more in my life. I (Melissa) and an avid gambler. I understand what it means to go to a casino, win a lot of money and then lose even more than you won. For me, it’s not even about the win. It’s more so the art of playing that excites me. The lights, the sounds, the bonus rounds on the slot machines. If you follow Drake’s career at all, you know he loves gambling too. He regularly posts videos betting, gambling and winning lots of money. But like most gamblers, we rarely hear about the losses. We only hear about the wins. Cue in Monday night’s live stream on Drake’s gambling partner Stake.  Drake had made several bets and won millions. At one point his bankroll had gotten up to $25 million. But if you left the stream early, you missed his ending bankroll. By the end of the night, Drake’s bankroll had dwindled down to just over $1800. Watch the winning moments below:
