About El Apache

A card in the Mexican card game Loteria is called El Apache. Similar to bingo, it’s a classic Mexican board game of chance where players use a deck of cards that have pictures on them along with the names that go with them. As the caller or cantor calls out matched photos, players tick them off on a board that has a 4x4 grid of photographs. El Apache represents a character that is typically connected to indigenous peoples in Lotería. This card has several meanings and interpretations and is significant in the game.
