Satta Matka

In India during the 1950s, Satta Matka was known as ‘Ankara Play.’ In a very little period, the Satta Matka gained immense popularity and completely transformed into an extraordinary game. The Satta Matka game is dependent on choosing the correct numbers and betting in the right manner.

It is one of the very famous and oldest lottery games played in India. It has been a part of the Indian culture since the pre-independence days. People love the Satta Matka game and play it for some entertainment, fun, and making some extra money.

In the beginning, the game was played on a small piece of paper with some numbers written on it. These chits were kept in a pot named Matka, which led to the name of the Matka game. A random person would then take out the chits from the Matka and announce the winner. That’s how the game was played in the late 90s.

Due to the game’s popularity, the police started banning the game and gaming centers as people got involved in the game more than was required. They started placing bets on their whole fortunes, which caused great unrest in the region. However, as the internet evolved, the previously banned game in India could be played very easily with the help of different online lottery platforms. This gave the old punters a new wave of happiness as they got a chance to play their most favorite game again. The newbies were equally excited and in love with the lottery game!

Tips for playing Matka Game

In the Satta Matka game, you must understand the game to win, and you must be smart with numbers. Also, you must try to follow the following tips to enhance your game further:

  1. Always choose your lucky number. Most people believe that if they choose the lucky number, they will win.
  2. Make sure the bookies don’t fool you. By law, they can only keep 5% of the total win as a commission, but in some cases, they tend to fool you and keep 10%, so be vigilant and mindful.
  3. Don’t place your bets on the maximum amounts you have. Instead, always opt for smaller bets initially, as, in this way, you will be in the game for longer periods.
  4. Make sure you make fewer mistakes while playing. The bookies are smart; they catch your mistakes and will make you lose by playing on your weaknesses. So, always try to minimize the mistakes you make.
  5. Try to improve your maths as much as possible. The literate bettors are less in number, so you will most likely win a jackpot if you know how to play with numbers.
  6. Play the Satta Matka game like you would play any other game. If you play with greed, you are most likely to lose the game, but you will most likely hit the jackpot if you have good spirits.
  7. Keep the game simple and choose the simplest possible numbers. Most people choose complex numbers, which are hardly the winning numbers. So opt for the simple ones to have more chances of winning.
  8. Read the basic rules and regulations of the game, then start putting in money. Otherwise, you will be at a loss and can be conned easily. Also, you can ask the bookie about the game for better understanding.
  9. Never try to bribe the bookers or play tricks with them. They can’t help you win as they follow the rules and abide by them. Passing the chits to the bookies or offering them something will only kick you out of the game rather than winning it.
