When I first saw the enchanting images on Mexican loteria cards (used to play to the Bingo-style game of the same name), my first thought was that they could be used for readings. Many of the images are archetypal, and some, like Death or the Sun, also appear in the Major Arcana.

Turns out that I'm not the first to have this idea, though so far I haven't found any resources that give meanings for the cards or suggest ways to use them in readings. Readers are free to reflect on the images to ascertain the meaning that applies. While some cards, such as Death, are fairly obvious, others, such as my favorite La Sirena, invite further exploration. Lucky Mojo sells a loteria game, and recommends a three cut spread.
