" NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The winning Mega Millions tickets  were sold in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland, but some Tri-State Area players also cashed in.

While no one won the top prize in the Tri-State, not everyone was left empty-handed. There were 17 second prize winners in New York, five in New Jersey and one in Connecticut, according to the Mega Millions website.

One of those was sold by Bob Patelle at his store near Penn Station.

Each of those winners will take home $250,000.

Scott Irvine of Teaneck managed to get a few matching numbers and came away with $11.

“I hope it’s a married couple that is struggling, that’s got two kids,” one man told WCBS 880′s Sophia Hall "
