Lotería Mexicana is a game of chance (bingo variant) that uses richly decorated playing cards instead of bingo balls.
The game consists of:
- 54 playing cards each with a different image, number and card name;
- One or more tablas (the equivalent of bingo tickets) for each player; and
- Pinto beans for marking (daubing) the tablas.
The tablas have 16 images from the card deck arranged in a 4x4 grid.
