LAS VEGAS (AP) — “Jeopardy!” champ James Holzhauer is continuing his remarkable winning streak to chase the game show’s all-time record, but first he’s being awarded with the key to the Las Vegas Strip.
Holzhauer, a professional gambler from Las Vegas, has won 20 games and more than $1.5 million so far. Holzhauer’s wins are second to the longest-ever winning streak from Ken Jennings in 2004, who won 74 straight games and $2.5 million.
To honor the gambler, the Clark County Commission will present Holzhauer on Thursday afternoon the key to the Strip.
