Cash Explosion, known as Cash Explosion Double Play from 1989 until 2006, is an official Ohio Lottery TV game show, which is broadcast on television stations throughout Ohio. The show originated in Cleveland and is now taped by Mills James Productions in Columbus, Ohio.
Cash Explosion originally aired from February 7, 1987 to September 30, 2006, at which point the Ohio Lottery replaced it with Make Me Famous, Make Me Rich. However, slumping ticket sales and poor ratings prompted the return of the Cash Explosion format a year later, on October 6, 2007, and it has remained on the air since. Cash Explosion is the second longest-running state lottery based game show (behind California's The Big Spin, which ended its run on January 10, 2009, after 23 years and 1,213 episodes). As of July 3, 2010, Cash Explosion is the only weekly lottery game show airing in the U.S. (after the cancellation of California's Make Me a Millionaire).

Famous quotes containing the words explosion and/or cash:
“Frau Stöhr ... began to talk about how fascinating it was to cough.... Sneezing was much the same thing. You kept on wanting to sneeze until you simply couldnt stand it any longer; you looked as if you were tipsy; you drew a couple of breaths, then out it came, and you forgot everything else in the bliss of the sensation. Sometimes the explosion repeated itself two or three times. That was the sort of pleasure life gave you free of charge.”
—Thomas Mann (18751955)
“Lora May: Did you ever stop to think, Porter, that in over three years theres one word weve never said to each other, even in fun.
Porter: To you, Im a cash register. You cant love a cash register.
Lora May: And Im part of your inventory. You cant love that either.”
—Joseph L. Mankiewicz (19091993)
