Satta King is an online lottery game that has been dominating the Indian audience due to its appealing format. It has been around since the start of the Indian Independence during the 1950s. Earlier, it was known as “Ankad Jugad”. Nowadays it is also known as Satta Matka.
It originally began with people betting on the opening and closing rate of the imported cotton updated through the Bombay Stock Exchange. It was initially started in the USA and people used to bet on the opening and closing rates of cotton that used to come from the New York Stock exchange.
Satta King started in the 1950s, while most people bet on the opening and closing prices of cotton, which was then sent from Bombay Cotton Exchange to New York Cotton Exchange. In 1961, when the New York Cotton Exchange banned this type of betting, then the gamblers had to think of a new way to keep going. In 1962, a second emperor, Kalyanji Bhagat, an owner of a grocery shop from Worli, started Kalyan Worli Matka. At black satta king after two years, Ratan Khatri resumed the New Worli Matka in 1964. Kalyanji Bhagat’s Matka used to run all days of the week, whereas Ratan Khatri’s Matka used to run only six days a week. When textile mills became more popular in Mumbai, most of the mill workers started playing Matka more, due to which more bookies started opening their shops around these mill areas. This resulted in Central Mumbai having a huge Matka business, and it had become a big hub in Mumbai.
There was a time when it reached its peak between the 1980s and 1990s, and at that time there was a business of about Rs 500 crore per month. After repeated raids of Mumbai Police, there was a lot of damage at the bases of Satta Matka. So, bookies were forced to take these bases out of the city. At the same time, some had to be taken to other states also like Gujarat, Rajasthan, etc. When there were no more options for Satta left, then the bookies started to concentrate on other gambling methods such as online lotteries. As the interference of the police started increasing, this business also started to suffer a lot. At the same time when Kalyanji Bhagat’s son “Suresh Bhagat” was killed, in 2008, the Satta was almost closed. Even after this, other Satta Matkas are more popular today such as Gali, Disawar, Faridabad, Delhi Bazaar, Kuber, JD Durga, New Faridabad, etc.
