What is the highest possible score in a game of Jeopardy?

The most that can possibly be won in a single game of Jeopardy is $566,400. In order to achieve this score, the contestant would have to answer every question correctly, of course, as well as select the Daily Double clues last in every round and wager everything. (They'll need some extra luck there, as the Daily Doubles would need to be under $200 squares in round 1 and $400 squares in round 2.) They would also need to wager everything in the Final Jeopardy round.

In April 2019, James Holzhauer set the single-game winnings record with $131,127.
