About El Catrin

El Catrin is a card from the Mexican game Loteria. It is a classic Mexican board game of chance, similar to bingo, played with a deck of cards depicting pictures and their matching names. Players choose a board with a 4x4 grid of photographs and check off matched images when they are announced by the cantor or caller. The card “El Catrin in Lotería” depicts a gallant or gentleman, symbolizing personal progress and quest of greatness. It is usually associated with Mexican folklore and culture.
