Lotería Lotería is a Latin American game of chance, similar to bingo, but using images on a deck of cards instead of plain 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. Each tabla represents a different selection of images, which are called one by one. In order to win, all the images on the tabla need to be called and preperly marked. The winner then calls LOTERĺA and wins a price!
