The History of La Lotería...
Spanish for “the lottery”, Lotería is a card game that originated in Italy during the 15th century and was later brought to Mexico in the 1700's. Lotería began in the old country as a hobby for the richer or upper classes of Spanish society, but eventually the card games popularity thrived in Mexico to become a big tradition for all classes of Mexican society. Sometimes referred to as the "Mexican game of chance" Loteria is similar to bingo. Using images on a deck of cards instead of plain numbers on ping pong balls.
