Two million dollars. That's the threshold that reigning "Jeopardy!" champion James Holzhauer crossed on Friday.

The 34-year-old professional sports gambler is on a winning streak, second only to Ken Jennings who also crossed the $2 million mark with a final total of just over $2.5 million over 74 games.

Holzhauer, by comparison just hit this mark during his 27th consecutive win. His total winnings are $2,065,535.

He has made his mark on the show by taking monetary risks going after "high-value clues first and big bets on Daily Doubles, often doubling his total," Business Insider's Hillary Hoffower previously wrote.

Holzhauer wagered $35,000 during "Final Jeopardy," TVLine reported , bringing his total game winnings to $74,000.

As Business Insider previously reported , Holzhauer broke the record for the most amount of money in a single game and in the show's hall of fame , he is in the top 10 spots for "single-game winnings."
