Bob Parlante Wins Top Prize Playing "10X Cash 4th Edition"
$10,000 Lottery Prize is a Real “Heart-Pounder” for Ellington Winner
June 01, 2011 -- When the day’s weather forecast predicted hot weather,  it wasn’t long before Bob Parlante, an oil burner technician who lives in Ellington, answered the call of thirst with a bottle of water purchased at Tolland Xtra Mart, located at 153 Hartford Road, Route 30, in Tolland.  He also figured, “what the heck,” and also purchased a CT Lottery “10X Cash 4th Edition” instant ticket. 

Before Parlante left the store, he scratched the ticket and revealed several “X” multiplier symbols next to a corresponding prize amount.  “My heart was pounding like you wouldn’t believe.  I couldn’t believe it was me that was winning so much,” Parlante said.   When he totaled up his prizes, much to Parlante’s complete amazement, he had just won the game’s $10,000 top prize.  “I let out the biggest yell, and gave the clerk a nice tip!” Parlante told Lottery officials with a chuckle.   

Parlante, 60, immediately called his daughter to share his thrilling news.  “She was even more excited than I was…she cried,” said Parlante.

Parlante traveled to CT Lottery headquarters in Rocky Hill to collect his prize check for $6,853 (value after taxes).  “This is going to catch me right up.  I’m going to pay off my bills and get my boat into the slip this year.  I haven’t had it in the water for two years.  Tonight, I’m taking my family out to dinner along the shoreline to celebrate,” Parlante said.

For selling Parlante his $10,000 top prize winning ticket, Tolland Xtra Mart will receive a $100 bonus check from the CT Lottery.
