LOTTERIES

2: The largest U.S. lottery jackpot ever awarded was a $1.6 billion jackpot for this game, split among three winners in January 2016.

4: Guinevere and Lancelot are machines used in this nation's lottery drawings, run by the Camelot Group.

6: Months before his July 4, 1826, death, this founding father got Virginia to authorize a lottery to pay off his debts.

8: Before the Supreme Court struck down the federal ban on sports betting, the Delaware Lottery offered this type of multi-game bet on NFL games that pays when each individual outcome is correctly predicted.

10: The "winner" of the lottery is stoned to death in this author's short story "The Lottery".

YOU ASKED FOR IT

3: GERMANS IN COEN BROTHERS FILMS--A group of German nihilists claims to have done a kidnapping in this huge 1998 film about two people with the same name.

6: "S"WORDS ETYMOLOGY--This synonym of sheath comes from the Anglo-Norman French word escalberc.

9: CHESS, OPERA, & PRESIDENTS NAMED BARACK PENCIL & PAPER MATH--(# titling a 2006 film about the Battle of Thermopylae) + (# of spaces on a chessboard) + (# of operas by Beethoven) = this number of electoral votes Obama won in 2008.

12: CLASSIC ADVENTURE GAMES MISSING VOWELS (we've taken a game title, removed the vowels A, E, I, O, and U, and changed the spacing; you supply the correct title)--GR MFN DNG
