Check out Lottery, Mexican Bingo, that your family will enjoy this quarantine: Culture: Latin Post – ABOUT MAG 2020

Being trapped inside the home gives you a lot of time to strengthen this family bond through games and recreation, like playing the Lottery.

The Lottery game is played in the same way as American Bingo. But unlike American Bingo, where the announcer calls the selected letters and numbers and players mark their game boards accordingly, the Lottery announcer says a short poem or familiar phrase referring to the image on the card. Each Lottery player uses a chip – traditionally a bean – to mark the corresponding spot on his tabla. In any game, the first player to fill the board or tabla in a predefined pattern will shout “Lottery!” to win the game.

According to a article, the origin of the lottery can be traced back to the 15th century. Although this game is popular with Mexicans and other Latin Americans, the game originated in Italy and was brought to Mexico in 1769. At first, the lottery was a hobby of the upper class, but over time, it has become a tradition at Mexican fairs.

Don Clemente Jacques published the images behind the Lottery in 1887. Current images have become iconic in Mexican culture, but they have also gained popularity in the USA and in some European countries.
