One ticket sold in Great Neck for Tuesday's Mega Millions drawing missed out on the estimated $260 million jackpot, settling for a $1 million prize.

A ticket in Illinois matched all six numbers -- 2, 9, 11, 22 and 23, plus the gold Mega ball of 12 -- to win the big prize, according to megamillions.com.

The ticket sold at the New Lime Lite, a delicatessen at 170 Middle Neck Rd., matched five of the six numbers, missing the Mega ball.

The site said 14 tickets nationwide matched five numbers and missed the Mega ball, including one other New York winner, sold in Williamsville, northeast of Buffalo in Erie County.
