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 rewarded 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, by Ken Jennings who won 74 straight games and $2.5 million in 2004.

To honor Holzhauer, the Clark County Commission will present him the key to the Strip on Thursday afternoon.

Commission Chair Marilyn Kirkpatrick will also recognize the gambler as a goodwill ambassador for Las Vegas.

He’s pledged to donate some of his winnings to local charities, including the Las Vegas Natural History Museum
