Lotería is a Mexican game of chance, similar to bingo, but using images on a deck of cards instead of numbers on ping pong balls. Every image has a name and an assigned number, but the number is usually ignored.

Each player has at least one tabla, a board with a randomly created 4 x 4 grid of pictures with their corresponding name and number.  Every players receives a tabla, each one presenting a different selection of images.

Lotería is the Spanish word for lottery. The deck is composed of a set of 54 different images, each one in a card. To start the game, the caller (cantor, or singer) randomly selects a card from the deck and announces it to the players by its name, sometimes using a riddle or humorous patter instead of reading the card name. The players with a matching pictogram on their board mark it off with a chip or other kind of marker (Mexican people traditionally use small rocks or beans as markers). The first player with four chips in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row, squared pattern, any other previously specified pattern, or fills the tabla first shouts "¡Lotería!" (Lottery!) or "¡Buenas!" (Good!) and is the winner.

Pack contains 10 boards and 54 cards.
