History of the Game

Its origins in Italy in the 15th century, Lotería first moved to Spain before reaching Mexico in 1769. The rules are similar to bingo. In that, players mark spots on a tabla, or board, with a token (traditionally a raw bean) and attempt to fill it before all other players. A card announcer randomly pulls colorfully illustrated cards like “La Luna,” or “El Arbol,” and sometimes improvises poetic descriptions that match spaces on the tablas. A shout of “¡lotería!” or “¡buenas!” declares victory for one lucky player, ending the round. 

One of the best-known versions was created in Mexico by Frenchman Clemente Jacques in 1887. The Don Clemente Gallo edition, copyrighted in 1913. They mainly feature the imagery that’s become a form of folk art synonymous with Lotería. Protection Status
