# The Matka Framework : THE DESIGN OF THE GAME

The Matka Framework explains how the multiple variations are fused together to form a beautiful game. This chapter also revises the whole concept of matka again, from a framework point of view which is more easier to understand.

At first, during the 60’s people gambled on opening and closing rates of cotton transmitted from New York Cotton Exchange. Pretty boring and less dramatic.Then, Matka happened.

They used to put numbered chits in a big earthen pot (called ‘matka’ in hindi) and draw from it; hence the name “Matka”.

+++++++++++++++++++CONCEPT OF PANA ======================

Three Playing cards were drawn from the pot(matka) and were put on the table.

Then, they arranged it in Ascending Order; smallest of the three cards first to largest at last.

They called it “PANA”

Note:Some people refer to Pana as Patti, Panel,
Panna; its same whichever way its called.

Note: In Matka, 0 is considered more than 9

Any 3 digit number when arranged in ascending order, produced only 220 unique numbers.Example: 123, 132, 213, 231, 312, 321

Any of the above numbers when placed in A<B<C format, produced only 123, which is a Pana.

They found out that doing so (arranging all 3 digit numbers in ascending order), resulted in 3 types of Pana’s:

90 Pana’shad two consecutive numbers repeating.

For these types of Pana’s they came up with a name to properly identify them

Pana’s with 3 unique numbers are called SINGLE PANA (SP PANA)Example: 123

There are 120 SINGLE PANA’s

Pana’s with two consecutive repeating Numbers are called DOUBLE PANA (DP PANA)Example: 558

There are 90 DOUBLE PANA’s

Pana’s with 3 numbers same are called TRIPLE PANA (TP PANA)Example: 888

There are 10 TRIPLE PANA’s

================ THE CONCEPT OF SINGLE (ANK) ========================

Then, they added the 3 cards

Simply, written as,

The resultant total by adding the 3 digits of the Pana, is called its SINGLE.

But, the resultant totals by adding the 3 digits of the Pana ranged from 0 to 27.

So, to simplify the total, they kept a rule :

A If the total of the 3 digits of the pana is 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9; the total is considered as “Single”

Ex. 134 (1+3+4) = {8}
In this case, 134 belongs to Single 8.

B If the total of the 3 digits of the pana is more than 9, ie 10 to 27, second digit of the number is considered as “Single”

Ex. 689 (6+8+9) = 2{3}
In this case 689 belongs to Single 3.

Simply written as,

Every 3 Cards drawn, arranged in ascending order and summed, gave a Single.

Hence,

Every Pana sums to a Single.

There are 10 Singles 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, and 22 Panas permanently allotted to each Single.

###################### THE CONCEPT OF OPEN and CLOSE #####################
Until here, the procedure went like this : They used to draw 3 cards, arrange them in ascending order [PANA], add the three digits of the pana to form a [Single].

As you know, Matka is inspired from Opening and Closing rates of Cotton from New York Cotton Exchange, An “Open” and a “Close” are common. Every Trade has a Open and a Close. Same applies for Matka. The betting on Matka, is based on “Open” and a “Close”.

The’d draw two times.

The First draw is Called  : OPEN

They’d draw 3 Cards, place them on the table, arrange them in Ascending Order. Then they summed the cards to produce the Open Single.

Then they took a Break. 1 Hour Break. Then, it was time for Second Draw.

The Second draw is Called  : CLOSE

They’d draw 3 Cards, place them on the table, arrange them in Ascending Order. Then they summed the cards to produce the Close Single.

Always, a matka result, be it open result or close result, is a “Pana and its resulting Single”

Then, the Open Result, and Close Result were arranged on the table to form the “Full Result” for people to note down.

The irregular Card arrangement was not cool. So, they made a standard.

They arranged the cards in same order, in same format everyday. They called it the “Full Result”

################ THE CONCEPT OF JODI ##################

Arranging the Open and Close in a standard format gave rise to more ideas.

The Open Pana produced Open Single

The Close Pana produced Close Single.

They combined Open Single and Close Single which gave rise to a 2 Digit variation of the game, called JODI

############### THE CONCEPT OF SANGAM ####################

And they felt, why not combine Open Pana and Close Pana to make a 6 Digit Variation of the game.

They Did, and called it SANGAM

################ THE CONCEPT OF HALF SANGAM ###################

Then, they felt, why not make a hybrid variation. A cross of Pana and Single.

Since, Each Pana added to its own single, it didnt make any sense.

Then, it came, two variations,

They Combined :

Open Pana with Close Single

and
Open Single with Close Pana

and called it HALF SANGAM

For convenience and to remember properly, we, at Just Matka introduced a small standard.

we started referring,

Open Pana with Close Single as: HALF SANGAM A (HSA)

&

Open Single with Close Pana as: HALF SANGAM B (HSB)

THE MATKA FRAMEWORK

There are 10 “SINGLE”s
There are 100 “JODI”s
(10 Open Singles x 10 Close Singles )

There are 220 “PANA”s of which are :

120 Single Pana’s,
90 Double Pana’s
and
10 Triple Pana’s

Each Single has 22 Pana’s allotted to it.
(10 Singles x 22 Panas = 220 Panas Total)

Of 22 Pana’s allotted to each Single,
12 are SP Pana’s.
9 are DP Pana’s and
1 Triple Pana.

There are 4400 “HALF SANGAM”s
220 Pana’s X 10 Singles (Half Sangam A)
+
10 Singles X 220 Pana’s (Half Sangam B)
There are 48400 “SANGAM”s
220 Pana’s X 220 Pana’s

MATKA RATE CHART

They gave different variations of the game, different rates. One would get paid according to the rate if what played matches with the drawn result.

In the following chart, if rate is 1:X, then it means that : “you get X rupees for every 1 rs you played” (given that the game you play matches with the result (Pass))

Here are the standard rates.

SINGLES = 1:9
JODI = 1:90
SINGLE PANA  = 1:140
DOUBLE PANA  = 1:280
TRIPLE PANA  = 1:600
HALF SANGAM  = 1:1400
SANGAM  =  1:15000

The crowd went Gaga about the game and its genius mechanics. They loved the game. The game is a instant hit; you can tell that by the game’s 60+ years of running history.
