How to Play Matka

You have to pick (3) three numbers ranging from 0 – 9. For example 5, 3, 6 would be your random first pick of the numbers. Furthermoreto make the game more interesting the picked numbers are added up (5 + 3 + 6) and the total sum is given as the final number. As in this example it is 14. You have to only use one digit of the final number, if you choose the last one. In this example it will be the 4.

So now your first draw will be 5, 3, 6 *4.

Similarly a second set is also drawn. As an example let’s consider the numbers      8, 2, 8 as the next set. This gives us a final number as 18, here again we use only the last digit i.e 8 so our final draw ofsecond set of numbers will be 8,2,8 *8

The final card  for the draw would look like this: 270*9 X 3*238 .

Let’s take an Example of a Bet of 10 Rupees

– If you correctly choose the first number drawn: 9 X Your Wager of 10Rs = 90 Rs.

  – If the next number the player chooses correctly is drawn: 9 X Your Wager of

     10Rs = 90 Rs.

  – If you choose the middle number and the first number correctly in perfect

     combination:  90 X Your Wager = 900 Rs.
