What are the origins of Satta Matka?

“Satta-Matka” is a lottery style game very popular in the mid ‘900 in which bets were placed on the opening and closing rates of the New York and Bombay cotton exchanges. The system was later changed and based on other forms of creating random numbers, along with pulling slips from a huge bowl also known Matka or playing cards.

How to play the Satta Matka

Firstly player has to pick (3) numbers from 0–9. For example, 5,3,6 would be your first picked random numbers from given 0–9. To add more thrill and substance to the diversion, the numbers are then included/added (5 + 3 + 6) and a last number is given. In this example it is 14. Now, you only have to keep one digit of this number, that is the last one. In this example, it will be the 4. So, your first draw would be 5,3,6 *4.

There are also a second set of numbers which is drawn. The process is similar just like step 1. The rules for picking 2nd number is exactly same as the first draw. As a random case, let us consider numbers 8,2,8. This gives us a sum of 18, we again just only keep the last digit so our last pick for the second draw of numbers is 8,2,8 *8 Our last card would resemble this: 5,3,6 *4 X 8,2,8 *8. Here is an example card.
