Basically Matka which is also known as Satta is a type of lottery that made its appearance in Mumbai back in the year 1962. However this form of gambling was also present in the pre-independence days in the name of “Ankada Jugar” which means gambling with figures. In essence; it refers to the Indian form of betting and the pioneers of the process were Kalyanji Bhagat who started the Kalyan Matka and known as Satta King and Ratan Khatri also known in the gambling world as the Matka King. While in the past it was necessary physically approaching some Satta or Matka domain for playing the game, true to the modern tradition the game is now available online as well.

Despite the fact that Satta or Matka is not legal in the country, they are still widely played in both India as well as in Pakistan. Target group of participants for the bookies usually are the working class of people in both countries who prefer to play the game since the bets are small and are within the affordability levels of the small and medium income group people. After long and hectic day these people look for some easy entertainment and fun and that is what is offered by the Indian form of gambling games.
