Another reason that the increase is so small besides the ones stated is because the jackpot value was small to begin with since someone had won the jackpot last week. I'm sure that if the jackpot was $50 million or more rather than $12 milliion, the increase would have been a lot higher, even with California and New Jersey factored in.

      The jackpot is projected based on past history , current states projectional revenue, and those who buy advance tickets for games. They cant really over project. Im sure it will increase by Tuesdays draw since Im going to buy 3$ worth. That should add a whoppin $1.23 to the jackpot ! :)

      (Im behind the times , I didnt realize NJ is having lottery problems. That will make a difference!)

        The lotteries do a good job predicting.

        They probably looked at Tuesday being the 4th of July holiday and assuming a lot of places will be closed or people won't have lottery tickets on their mind.

        Also the 3rd largest seller in MM doesn't have the ability to sell tickets.  This probably also had some push into only raising the jackpot by $2,000,000.

          Bradly_60, to add insult to injury, CA SLP for 7/5 has rolled to 106 million.

            I would still buy a couple of tickets even at 14 million. But I agree it will probably start rolling bigger when the jackpot gets a bit higher and when NJ is able to play again.

            Dance like no one is watching.

              If NJ has to shut down their participation in MM due to budget problems, sales will continue to fall. I think MM will roll, but it will probably set a new roll 2 low in new matrix.
