January 5, 1987. It’s a significant date in Ohio Lottery history because it’s the date the Cash Explosion instant ticket went on sale. Since then, it’s been 25 years of the Cash Explosion game show and thousands of Ohioans winning in grand fashion!
This year, the 25th anniversary of the show, is going to be a fun one! We are celebrating Cash Explosion’s silver anniversary with six months of winning themed ‘Celebrating 25 Years of Cash Explosion Winning in 25 Weeks’! It means bigger prizes, more winnings and a special show for Cash Explosion fans!
Starting February 10, 2012, you can buy the new 25th Anniversary ticket! You’ll recognize it because it’s a little bigger and it has the 25th Anniversary logo. We’re all about the number 25! Players who reveal the 25th Anniversary logo can enter on-line for a second chance drawing. 1,000 players will be selected from the on-line entries to win $2,500 each and 12 very lucky players will be drawn as contestants on a special Cash Explosion ‘super’ show where they have the chance to win up to $250,000!
Speaking of the show, there will be a lot of fun changes that mean more winnings for more players! In addition to the existing $45,000 in Bonus Bucks, we will be adding five $5,000 bonus squares to the game board. That means $50,000 more dollars could be won every single week during the Cash Explosion Anniversary Celebration. And viewers can expect some exciting new visual changes to the show including a redesigned Championship game to add drama and suspense.
And because we love our Cash Explosion fans so much, we will have a Cash Explosion Fan Appreciation Day! There will be lots of fun and family oriented activities for adults and children, from clowns, face painting and bands to our Cash Explosion Mini Games and Express Games where players can win money right on the spot!
Get ready because 2012 is going to be fun for us and our Ohio Lottery fans!
