It's a bit like bingo -- cards are dealt and you try to find the corresponding card on your board. If it's there, you place a bean on the card. Once you match a predetermined pattern with your beans, you hit the Loteria button. The first person to do this wins.

How Google made a Doodle game

In the actual game, you're meant to shout "Loteria!" or "buenas!" when you match the pattern -- it's up to you if you can yell a victory cry in your office or at home. Mexican YouTuber Luisito Comunica serves as the Doodle's announcer -- between him and the music, you'll be feeling energetic and might want to spend the whole day playing (and maybe pick up a little Spanish).

The art is by Mexico-based Chabaski, Mexico-born Cecilia, Hermosillo-born Luis Pinto, Los Angeles-based Loris Lora, and Mexico City-based Vals.

The game started in Italy during the 15th century, but became a Spanish hobby before hitting Mexico in 1769. It was officially copyrighted in Mexico on this day 106 years ago, Google noted.

Lotería: Monday's Google Doodle .
Google Doodles are almost as well-known as the company's search engine. But if you're not one of the millions who grew up playing this popular card game, you might not recognize this one.. © courtesy Google Lotería, as a Google Doodle. Lotería, which means lottery in Spanish, is a traditional Mexican card game. It operates kind of like bingo, with beans being used as markers. Instead of calling out numbers, though, the caller pulls a card from the deck and players see if their grid has that image. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.
