Someone Just Created A Salvadoran Lotería And Where Has This Been My Entire Life?!

If you’re Mexican, chances are you have played Lotería. The game originated in Mexico and is very similar to Bingo except that it uses illustrations instead of numbers. Even though it’s a very low maintenance game people tend to get loud and very involved while playing. Basically, this game is always a good time. 

For every Salvadoreño who has ever wished for there to be a Salvadoran version of Lotería… we are hooking you up!

After already selling out once, the mitú Mercado is restocking Milton Lara’s Lotería Salvadoreña. The Salvadoran version of Lotería uses images and names of Salvadoran items, foods and characters. Many of the items found in the game are not just specific to El Salvador, but it’s the way it’s said that makes it a true Salvadoran experience. 

Let’s see how well you can understand each one of these cards.
