Lotería is a traditional game of luck, similar to bingo, but using images on a pack of cards instead of numbers on balls. Each image has a name and an assigned number. To start, the players select at least one tabla, a board with a 4 x 4 grid of pictures showing their corresponding name and number. The players mark a matching image on their board mark it off with a chip or small marker. The first to complete a line of four chips in a horizontal, diagonal or vertical row, or to fill the tabla first shouts “Lotería!” and is the winner!
Don Clemente Jacques published a lotería game in 1887. The colorful images used in this set have become iconic in Mexican culture, as well as in the US and Europe.
