Several studies suggest that a large percentage of Indian office goers will quit their jobs despite winning a lottery. But studies often fail to depict the craze for the most glamorous form of lottery – Satta and Matka. Before independence, the Matka games were inspired by Bombay Cotton Exchange. But Satta Kings like Kalyanji Bhagat, Suresh Bhagat and Rattan Khatri completely changed the Satta games in 1960s.
In addition to dealing with crores of rupees, the Satta King also expanded the pan Indian appeal of the local Matka draws. The Matka King glamorized the Matka game by inviting Bollywood stars and celebrities to the events. But the Satta King or Matka King also associated the lottery game with criminals and fraudsters. Hence, many players explore ways to participate in the game by leveraging latest digital technologies.
The emerging digital technologies even make Satta King lost his throne and kingdom by enabling players to participate in Matka games in a flexible, convenient, and secure way. Nowadays, a player can use websites and mobile apps to participate in Satta draws regardless of his location. Likewise, he can also check the Matka draw results immediately without being present at the lottery draws physically. In the digital age, no player remembers any Satta King or Satta Matka King while playing the popular form of lottery.
