How satta matka came into existence in India.


It was 1992 when the term Kalyan Matka was firstly introduced in the Mumbai. The game gain its importance when the Worli matka came into being due to the Rattan Khatri. That game is a source of enjoyment along with it is also played to win money. The plus point about Kalyan Matka is that it is played throughout the week. Satta Matka is played five days in a week.

It is said that when the textile industry flourished in the metropolitan city the satta matka was at the peak.  The workers of the textile industry also jumped into that game. As a result, it became popular among the middle class people. Actually it was evolved from the opening and closing of cotton as transmitted to the Bombay Cotton Exchange. Year 1961 was a very important year in the history of satta matka. It happened that the New York Cotton Exchange stopped that work due to this the punters were searching for the alternative way of satta so that it could survive. At that time the Rattan Khatri gave the idea of opening and closing rates of imaginary products. The different numbers were written on the piece of papers and all of them were placed in a matka. Then a random chit was picked and the winner was declared. After some time, the numbers were picked from the playing cards but it was still called as satta. When a random ticket is picked from the matka the owner of that ticket is announced as winner and he is called as matka king.


Because of the fact that the trade centers were situated near the Mumbai so that place became the hub of kalyan matka . The decades of 1970’s till 1990’s were important in the history of satta matka. Then the metropolitan police take a serious action and kicked all the puckers from Mumbai. Most of them went to the Rajasthan and other states like that.  Due to which the satta matka loses its importance and the gambling stress was shifted to the cricket matches.  Even one can imagine the difference that at that time the matka dens are just three hundred but they were about two thousand in the past.
