Cash Explosion On the Road!

Many of you have asked where the Cash Explosion Show will go next, and we have the Cash_Explosion_logoanswer! The Road to Riches is headed straight to the Hard Rock Rocksino at Northfield Park!

The fun and games are all set for Saturday, November 22, 2014. Audience seating begins at 1:15 pm followed by the show taping at 2 pm. Admission to the show is free, and seating is first come first served.

You don’t just get to be part of the audience, you also get the chance to win something! We’ve got cash and merchandise prizes to give away. Weather permitting, starting at 11 am you’ll be able to play the Cash Explosion express games for the chance to win merchandise and cash prizes before the show! Then stick around for both show  because we’ll be raffling off prizes throughout the show.

The road show also marks the kickoff of our 4th annual Cash Explosion Facing Hunger Campaign! We will be collecting non-perishable food items for donation to the Akron Canton Regional Food Bank. We collected almost two tons of food at the last road show in Trotwood, and we need your help to beat that total! The Ohio Association of Food Banks lists the Super Six most needed items as boxed cereal, peanut butter, canned tuna, canned vegetables, canned beef stew and canned soup.

There is no age restriction for the Cash Explosion® show audience, but you must be 21 years of age or older to be on the gaming floor at the Hard Rock Rocksino.

We hope to see you there ready to yell C-A-S-H!
