Known as “The Mexican Bingo,” La Lotería is a tradition passed on from one generation to the next for many Mexican and Central American descendants. Its eye-catching and provocative images are frequently recreated by artists worldwide, and scholarly research on this topic is quickly growing. Moreover, it is an inclusive game, where players do not need any particular skill to play. The connoisseurs enjoy the rhymes and riddles that accompany each image during a traditional game. Thanks to this visual and verbal connection, as well as to the rich cultural context in which these images were created, La Lotería is an excellent pedagogical tool, not only for vocabulary acquisition but for gender and racial studies, since it includes characters that exemplify the three main racial groups in Colonial Mexico: The Indigenous, the European, and the African.
