Who started playing Satta Matka?
Worli Matka was started in 1962 by Kalyanji Bhagat who was a farmer from Gujarat
This matka still runs for seven days, that is, money is invested in this game for seven day
New Worli Matka was started by Ratan Khatri in 1964 with slight changes in the rules of Satta Matka
Any kind of gambling is considered illegal in India, but despite this, the business of Matka continued on a large scale in Mumbai
This gambling was played by putting slips in the pot, hence it is called 'matka gambling'
Khatri worked with Kalyan Bhagat in the initial days but started his own 'Ratan Matka' shortly after
In the 1960s, Matka caught the attention of the youth of Mumbai and became very popular
For decades, people were addicted to matcha. Khatri's death has stirred the betting market
The matka, in which a lot of slips were put, was so popular among the people that its daily turnover reached up to one crore. The game of betting is being played in Mumbai since the British era
