¡Juega a la Lotería! (Play Lotería!)
Lotería, which means "lottery" in Spanish, is similar to numbers game Bingo. The game sees each player have a card with 16 images on them. The aim of the game is to match four images in a row or column on the "tabula" with the cards picked from a deck of 54 by the announcer. Once someone has four matching images—vertical or diagonal row, squared pattern, any other previously specified pattern—marked by token beans, they shout "Lotería!"
