The Las Vegas gambler who is currently breaking records on the game show "Jeopardy" is also gaining attention for donations to local community and some interesting offers.

James Holzhauer tweeted what appears to be an email from the gentleman's club Crazy Horse 3 on Tuesday.

The professional gambler said in the tweet "I may not be the first Jeopardy contestant to win a million bucks, but I bet I'm the first to get this offer."

He then followed it up with a tweet that said "Note that I'm expected to have a going rate for these appearances like I'm @FloydMayweather."

The entire Las Vegas valley appears to be fascinated with the latest big winner.

He cranked the siren for the Vegas Golden Knights before their game on April 21.

The county gave him a key to the Las Vegas Strip on May 2.

Panic! At The Disco, a band that got their start in Las Vegas, took notice when Holzhauer was unable to answer a question about them.

People are also posting selfies and photos with him from various locations around town.

Holzhauer is current second on the game show's list of big winners with 22 straight wins. So far, he has won almost $1.7M. Ken Jennings is the biggest winner in the show's history after earning $2.5M over 74 straight victories in 2004.

As for those donations, he has donated $10K each to Las Vegas Natural History Museum and Project 150, which helps disadvantaged teenagers in Las Vegas.
