Karen Westhafer of Newcomerstown appeared on the April 2 edition of Cash Explosion, Ohio Lottery's weekly game show, which is taped in Columbus.

She ended up winning $11,500.

"It was awesome," she said. "I'd do it again in a heartbeat."

She already has plans to go back to the show.

"There's no doubt in my mind. If everything works right, I'll be back before the end of the year."
