You can't wager $69 or $666 on 'Jeopardy!'

James Holzhauer continues to rip it up on 'Jeopardy!' Last night, the professional sports gambler won his 18th game in a row. His total earnings so far are $1,329,604.

A lot has been written about 'Jeopardy!' in the past couple of weeks. I was surprised to learn that contestants are forbidden to wager on five distinct amounts. Here they are: $69, for the sexual connotation; $666. for the satanic connection and -- I didn't know this -- $14, $88 and $1488, as those figures are associated with white supremacy.

A marijuana enthusiast can still wager $420.

Here's a story about the forbidden wagers from Mashable.
