I have a winning Cash Explosion Entry Ticket, which I would be willing to sell to someone in Ohio who wanted a chance at appearing on the Game Show.

Here are some statistics I dug up: 

Cash Explosion® Double Play game show, weekly game show with top prize $200,000

First tickets went on sale January 1987

First show aired February 1987

On an average, 2,000 to 2,500 "Entry" tickets are received weekly

"Entry" ticket odds are 1:1,000

 8 winners are selected in each drawing.

Each ticket has a chance at winning in 2 drawings.

 So the odds of winning with this ticket are aproximately 1 in 125

    It may be worth more if you mail it in and win a chance to be on the show and allow someone to take your place for a fee.  Good luck to you.

      Yeah, but if I lose then I won't have any money, and if I win I might as well play the game!  Right?

        If someone buys it from you now there are 124 of 125 chances they're going to win nothing for their money, while on the other hand if they buy a new scratch-off it's a 1 of 5 chances they will win something for a dollar.  I guess it's a matter of what you're willing to gamble.

          I'm doing tarot now, and I've cut directly to the "Wealth" Card (10 of pentacles).  I think that could mean I'm going to win!!!  I should totally send this ticket in tomorrow.
