What is Lotería?
Lotería, which means ‘lottery’ in Spanish, is a popular game of chance and luck in Mexico. Similar to Bingo, in Lotería there is a ‘caller’ who calls out a certain card and each player has a 16 cards in front of them. If the player has the card that the caller calls out, they place a bean on the card. The player wins if they have a four called out cards in a row or a cluster. When the player wins, they shout out, “Lotería!’
In Lotería, instead of numbers the players use cards with images on them. While traditionally there are 54 cards of everyday objects, in Lactation Lotería we will be using 24 cards of breastfeeding and chestfeeding images!
