$131,127 Is the Jeopardy One Day Record

James Holzhauer is the first ever Jeopardy contestant to break the $100,000 barrier in a single game of Jeopardy. And he’s now done it twice. Read on below to find out more about this exciting Jeopardy one day record setting performance.

Jeopardy one day record holder is James Holzhauer with $110,914

A professional sports gambler set another new Jeopardy one day record on April 17, 2019 with a total of $131,127. James Holzhauer from Las Vegas entered Final Jeopardy with an impressive $71,114.

Holzhauer then went on to win an additional $60,013 in Final Jeopardy. This brought his total winnings for the day to a record setting $131,127.

Prior to Holzhauer appearing on Jeopardy, the Jeopardy one day record was set by Roger Craig back on September 14, 2010 with a total of $77,000. Holzhauer initially broke Craig’s record just eight days earlier on April 9, 2019 when he won $110,914 in a single game of Jeopardy—a tribute to his daughter who was born on November 9, 2014:  11/09/14 vs $110,914.

While Holzhauer has played ten games of Jeopardy at the time of this writing, his winnings total $697,787. That’s an average daily winning of nearly $70,000. Do you think he can surpass legendary Ken Jennings’s 74 win streak in 2004 of $2,522,700?

Although the most you can win in a single game of Jeopardy is $566,400, no one has ever come close to winning this amount. If anyone can do it, I’ll put my money on James Holzhauer.
