Satta king was first started in the United States of America, which firstly involved laying on the opening and ending rates of cotton transmitted from the New York Cotton Exchange. In the 1960s, the New York Cotton Exchange stopped the practice, after which the bookies started another way to draw arbitrary number.
The credit for starting the Sattaking in India goes to 2 big bookies Kalyanji Bhagat and Ratan Khatri. In India, the Satta king was first started from Mumbai
. In 1961, the idea of getting a arbitrary number from the pot was started by a big gambler named Ratan Khatri. According to his idea, 1 to 100 figures were written on slips and were put in a pot. Also, without seeing a number was drawn from the pot.
In 1962, a bookie named Kalyanji Bhagat started the Warli Matka game, after that Ratan Khatri started the new Worli game in 1964 with some new rules. Kayanji Bhagat's Worli Matka Game, used to run all day in the week, But Ratan Khatri's Matka Game, used to run only for 5 days in the week.
In the 1980s to 1990s, the Satta king came so popular that its yearly laying volume had grown to further than 500 crores. Gradationally, the Sattaking came popular in other countries of India too and large number of people started playing this game.
