The Past And Present Of Satta Matka – An Overview

Dec 9th 2014 at 10:40 PM

When in the year 1962, a businessman Kalyanji Bhagat introduced the Worli matka in the city of Mumbai; few thought it will occupy a premier place in the marketing itinerary of the customers at large. Yet it happened and the popularity grew faster after the introduction of New Worli matka by Rattan Khatri. One major difference between the two types are that while both types of gambling satta matka offer excellent facilities for earning huge money in a relaxed manner is that while the kalyan matka remains open throughout the week, the one introduced by the satta king Rattan Khatri is open for five days a week only.

Background of Evolution

It was the flourishing textile industry in the city of Mumbai that saw numerous employees and even entrepreneurs get attracted to the matka game in its true perspective. Some people called it satta and that was the inspiration behind development of the concept of sattamatka in the consumer circles. Since most of the trade centers were located in and around central Mumbai, it became the hub for the satta matka game playing. During the period from 1970s to the 1990s there has been immense growth of the matka games. The volume increased so much that the trade came up to the tune of 500 crore rupees annually. However after a massive crackdown by the Mumbai police on the industry the satta king shifted the gambling dens to the outskirts of the city and to Gujarat. Soon kalyan matka followed suit. The betting emphasis was shifted gradually to cricket matches; national and international.  Matka dens that were over 2000 at one point of time were reduced to around 300 subsequently.

Matka Kings

A farmer from Ratadia village of Gujarat, Kalyanji Bhagat is the pioneer of satta and matka games in the city of Mumbai and elsewhere in the country. Migrating to Mumbai in the year 1941 he was originally spice vendor and was managing his grocery store. It was the year 1960 when he pioneered the matka industry with kalyan matka and therefore can be termed as the first satta king of the city. The matka trade operated from Vinod Mahal in Worli in Mumbai. On his death, son Suresh Bhagat took over the matka world. Unfortunately, it was his wife Jaya Bhagat and son Hitesh Bhagat who planned his murder and were caught and convicted under the local laws.

The Matka King

Rattan Khatri is known as the matka king and during 1960-90 controlled the entire industry. A look at the matka results of the time will indicate that he controlled the entire matka world in and around the country at that point of time. The initial wager of gambling was aimed at the fluctuating cotton market prices. However gradually the satta gambling shifted on to sports world and it was cricket that occupied the premier position.
