I expexted the jackpot to grow a lot more since there are 39 milion more people playing.

Sales in other states may have been down slightly.  Remember, with the matrix change everyone playing had to buy a new ticket for this drawing.  A lot of people buy multidraw tickets and since no ticket could cover the Tuesday and Friday drawings, there were probably a larger than normal number of people forgetting to buy new tickets.

    California sales will help Mega Millions get bigger jackpots, but other states will see sales shift from time to time. The new matrix actually improves the odds of winning any prize from 1 in 43 to 1 in 40, but winning the jackpot will be 1 in 176 million instead of 1 in 136 million.
