BHOOTNATH MATKA: 19 QUESTIONS ANSWERED

Bhootnath Matka is the latest addition to the long list of illegal Satta Matka games that run rampant in the dingy gullies of India. The game is not any different from the rest of the single-digit Matka games but comes with a unique name conjured up to pique the interest of both ardent players and casual enthusiasts.

Its popularity, needless to say, is growing only in the offline market. Nothing substantial or reliable can be found about this game online. The only sites that talk about it are the ones that publish the results or enable betting on it covertly. Credibility is not their strongest suit.

But as avid enthusiasts of legal lotteries and lottery-style games in India, we understand the value of comprehensive and accurate information when it comes to navigating such new games.

With this in mind, we have proactively sought out insights from Matka experts and compiled a list of the top 19 questions about the Bhootnath Satta game. Keep reading to uncover valuable information, which will help you make informed decisions as a player.

1. What Is Bhootnath Satta Matka?

As previously discussed, Bhootnath Satta Matka is one of the many variations of traditional Satta Matka – a single-digit lottery-style game that originated in pre-independent India and rose to popularity in the country post-independence. Like all other Matka games, this game, too, remains banned nationwide.

It involves players predicting two random numbers between 0 and 9 in two rounds of drawing cards. The player who guesses the numbers correctly is declared the Bootnath Satta King or the winner.

This exciting game is played Monday through Saturday. The opening draw takes place during the day between 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM. The closing draw, on the other hand, is held at night between 5:47 PM and 8:47 PM.

Its rules are the same as that of traditional Satta Matka. The only key difference is the timing of the draws, which again, isn’t really a difference as such.

A plausible reason Matka organizers use different and unique names for the same Satta game could be to create a sense of variety and excitement, which can further attract more players.

2. Is Bhootnath Matka Legal?

The Indian Constitution deems single-digit lotteries such as Satta Matka illegal. This new Satta game called Bhootnath is no different. Playing or organizing it, or helping a person play or organize it can lead to legal and criminal consequences.

While playing online Matka of foreign origin at international lottery sites can still be considered legal, it's important to note that no such sites currently offer a legitimate online version of the Bhootnath Matka game.

Those caught organizing it offline in India could face a fine of up to ₹200 and/or imprisonment for up to 3 months. On the other hand, playing the game can result in a monetary penalty of up to ₹100 and/or imprisonment for up to two months.

As responsible patrons of lottery, we strongly advise against participating in any such illegal Matka games due to the potential legal and financial ramifications. Playing them is a legal violation and can cause great financial loss due to their fast-paced and addictive nature.

3. How Is It Played?

Bhootnath diligently follows all the rules of traditional Matka. Players participate in one or both rounds, to place their bets on a single digit from 0 to 9 in each. The game determines the winning number for each round by randomly drawing three cards and adding their values together.

For instance, if the opening round results in the cards 1, 4, and 8, the sum of these numbers would be 13 and the last digit 3 would be considered the winning number for that round. Similarly, if the closing round results in the cards 4, 6, and 7, the sum would be 17 and the last digit 7 would be declared the winning number for that round.

If a player accurately predicts the winning number for the opening round, they win that round. On the other hand, if they guess the winning number for the closing round, they win the closing round.

If they can predict both numbers correctly, they win in both rounds. The Bhootnath Matka sequence in the above case would be this:

1, 4, 8*3 X 7*4, 6, 7

Apart from the single number bets (also known as Ank bets), players can also place bets on the following:

  • Jodi, which represents the pair of two digits in the opening and closing rounds respectively (37 in this instance)
  • The opening pana, which is the sequence of the three cards drawn in the opening round (1, 4, 8 in this case)
  • The closing pana, which is the sequence of the three cards drawn in the closing round (4, 6, 7 in this case)
  • Half Sangam, which is a combination of the single number from the opening round and the closing pana or the single number from the closing round and the opening pana
  • Full Sangam, which is the entire Bhootnath Satta Matka sequence as mentioned above

4. What Is a Bhootnath Matka Jodi?

Bhootnath Matka Jodi represents the numerical pair derived from the last digit of the sum of the three numbers in the opening and closing pana respectively. In the above example, 37 is the Jodi.

Those who have placed their bets on this Jodi and accurately predicted the two digits win the game. However, not all Jodis in the game pays out.

For instance, if the Jodi has the same two numbers, such as 33, or cut numbers that differ by 5, like 72, it is marked in red, and the bets placed on it are not paid out.

5. What Is Bhootnath Day?

Bhootnath Day, also known as Bhootnath Day Matka or Bhootnath Morning Matka, is the opening round, which marks the beginning of the game. It is typically held between 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM, hence the name. Interestingly, the draw is conducted in the afternoon or early evening, which makes the name somewhat ironic.

During this round, three cards are drawn at random, and players place their bets on the likelihood of a specific number from 0 to 9 being the sum of the card values. These three numbers are together known as the opening pana and the resulting sum is called the Open Ank.

Please keep in mind that if the sum of the three cards is a double-digit number, the last digit is considered the Ank. If a player accurately predicts it, they win the Day round.

6. What Is Bhootnath Night?

Bhootnath Night is the final round of the Bhootnath Matka game, also known as Bhootnath Night Matka or Bhootnath Evening Matka. This round signifies the end of the game for the day and is typically held between 5:47 PM to 8:47 PM.

Unlike the opening round, the name ‘Bhootnath Night’ is quite fitting as it accurately reflects the timing of the round. During this round, too, three cards are randomly drawn, and players place their bets on a specific number between 0 to 9, which they believe will be the sum of the card values.

The combination of these three numbers is known as the closing pana, and the resulting sum is referred to as the Close Ank. However, if the sum of the three cards is a double-digit number, only the last digit is considered the Ank. If a player accurately predicts this number, they win the Night round.

7. What Is Bhootnath Open?

Bhootnath Open is another term for the opening round of the Bhootnath Matka lottery. It has the same meaning as that of Bhootnath Day or Bhootnath Morning and is the same draw that is organized between 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM.

Naturally, the rules remain the same: players are asked to bet on the last digit of the sum of three numbers that would be drawn during the round.

8. What Is Bhootnath Close?

Bhootnath Close is another term for the final closing round of the Matka game. It also goes by the names of Bhootnath Night and Bhootnath Evening.

The draw takes place between 5:47 PM to 8:47 PM and follows the same rules. Players are required to bet on the last digit of the sum of three numbers that would be drawn during the round.

9. What Is Bhootnath Final Ank?

Bhootnath Final Ank is the term used for the last digit of the sum of three numbers drawn in each of the rounds. Each Bhootnath game has two Final Ank as follows:

Bhootnath Day Final Ank

Bhootnath Day Final Ank is the last digit of the sum of the three numbers drawn during the opening, Morning, or Day round. For instance, if 1, 4, and 8 are the cards drawn during the first round, their sum would be 13. Hence, the Day Final Ank for this round would be 3.

Bhootnath Night Final Ank

Bhootnath Night Final Ank is the last digit of the sum of the three numbers drawn during the closing, Evening, or Night round. For instance, if 4, 6, and 7 are the cards drawn during the last round, their sum would be 17. Hence, the Night Final Ank for this round would be 7.

10. Where Is Bhootnath Result Published?

Bhootnath result is never published officially by the organizers. It is usually published as a hint in a newspaper (for instance, a man showing a V sign to indicate that the Open Ank is 2, followed by another holding a 1 Rupee coin to indicate that the Close Ank is 1).

Alternatively, the outcome of the draws is openly published on Matka sites, which are anonymously run. It is up to the participant to believe or reject just results.

The only way to know for sure if you’ve won is to be directly in touch with the organizers. However, even that cannot guarantee a payout unless the latter is willing. The results of the game are usually published in two parts as follows:

Bhootnath Day Results

Right after the opening round ends and the winning Ank is declared, Bhootnath Day results are published in the following format: Opening Pana-Open Ank. So, if the opening pana has 1, 4, and 8 as the drawn card, the Day result will look something like this:

148-3

Bhootnath Night Results

Bhootnath Night results arrive after the closing round has ended and the winning Ank has been declared. They are published in the following format: Closing Pana-Close Ank. So, if the closing pana has 4, 6, and 7 as the drawn card, the Night result will look something like this:

148-37-467

Please note that Night results are never published separately. The Day results always accompany them. Once the Night results are in, the full Bhootnath sequence is revealed, which also seals the fate of Jodi, Half Sangam, and Full Sangam bettors.

11. What Is a Bhootnath Chart?

A Bhootnath chart is essentially a table that contains the results of all the Bhootnath draws that have been organized over a specific period. This Matka chart may cover a week, a quarter, a month, or a year, and provides a complete overview of the game's results during that timeframe. 

It displays the winning numbers for each round of the game, along with other relevant information such as the date and time of the draw. Such a chart can be of two types – panel and Jodi, which are discussed next.

Bhootnath Panel Chart

The Bhootnath panel chart displays results for both rounds. It shows the opening pana, the closing pana as well as the Jodi of the Open and Close Ank. Please note that a panel chart can be further segregated as a Day chart and a Night chart.

Bhootnath Jodi Chart

A Bhootnath Jodi chart displays only the winning Open and Close Ank. It does not contain any information about the three numbers that were drawn in each round. A Jodi chart comes in handy for players who exclusively place Jodi bets.

How to Read a Bhootnath Day Chart?

A Bhootnath Day chart contains information about only the opening pana and the resulting Open Ank in the first round. It shows the three drawn numbers of the opening pana arranged either vertically in small fonts accompanied by the Open Ank in a larger font, or horizontally like a three-digit number separated from the Open Ank by a hyphen.

How to Read a Bhootnath Night Chart?

A Bhootnath Night chart displays information about the closing pana and the resulting Close Ank in the final round. It shows the three drawn numbers of the closing pana arranged either vertically in small fonts accompanied by the Close Ank in a larger font, or horizontally like a three-digit number separated from the Close Ank by a hyphen.

The Day and Night results are seldom published in separate charts. Therefore, you will never have to worry about getting confused while reading them. The Day results are always published on the left-hand side, the Night results on the right-hand side, and the Jodi in between.

Please note that the Bhootnath Matka chart is an essential tool for players who wish to analyze the results of the game and develop strategies to stand a chance of winning. By examining the patterns and trends in the chart, players can identify the numbers that are more likely to be drawn and adjust their bets accordingly.

12. How Does Bhootnath Guessing Work?

Bhootnath guessing involves predicting the outcome of either the opening draw or the closing draw, or both. In fact, that’s the whole crux of Matka lottery – making a guess about the number that will be drawn and placing a bet based on this assumption.

Some players rely on guessing tools hoping for a better chance of winning. But believe it or not, these tools are as good as the players’ assumptions. They might occasionally predict the outcome correctly, but they do not guarantee a win.

Ultimately, Matka is a game of chance, and even the most accurate guessing tools cannot say for sure if their predictions would come true for sure. It is up to the individual player to decide their approach to the game and how much risk they are willing to take.

Bhootnath Day Guessing

Bhootnath Day guessing involves predicting the outcome of the opening draw of the game. An attempt is made to predict the three cards that are likely to appear during the draw and/or the Open Ank that would result from their summation.

Bhootnath Night Guessing

In Bhootnath Night guessing, players attempt to predict the outcome of the closing draw of the game. Specifically, they try to predict the three cards that are likely to appear during the draw and/or the Close Ank that would result from their summation.

13. What Is a Bhootnath Guessing Forum?

A Bhootnath guessing forum is an online platform where players and enthusiasts of the game can discuss various topics, including predictions for future draws. They can also share information about past draws based on which predictions can be made.

In such forums, players can usually post messages, spark conversations, reply to other players, and create or participate in polls. In a guessing forum, participants usually guess the outcome of both rounds of an upcoming game. Nevertheless, it can be segregated as follows:

Bhootnath Day Guessing Forum

A Bhootnath Day guessing forum is all about predictions made for the opening round of the Matka game. It allows discussions about the three cards that are likely to be drawn and/or the resulting Open Ank.

Bhootnath Night Guessing Forum

A Bhootnath Night guessing forum is the exact opposite. It is all about predictions made for the closing round. This forum allows discussions about the cards that might be drawn during the round and/or the resulting Close Ank.

Currently, there is no Bhootnath guessing forum that can be called legit. All such platforms that exist are available on various Satta Matka sites that are fishy to the core.

14. Are Bootnath Satta and New Bhootnath Satta the Same Game?

Bhootnath Satta and New Bhootnath Satta refer to the same single-digit Matka lottery. Usage of the word ‘new’ is probably because of the game’s freshness in the market.

15. Is It Possible to Play Bhootnath Matka Live?

It is possible to play Bhootnath Matka live, but only offline, and that too, at the risk of legal consequences. If you are contemplating playing this Satta Matka game live online, you would be disappointed big time.

Currently, no legit version of this Matka game is available at foreign lottery and casino sites. The only options you might come across are the shady websites that accept Matka bets under the table. They are far from legal and in no way secure or reliable.

16. Is It Possible to Check Bhootnath Result Live?

It is possible to check Bhootnath result live on sites that publish Matka results pertaining to the game. They publish the outcome of each draw as and when it ends. However, there is no guarantee that these results are authentic.

Also, you can always expect a slight delay because the results need to be sourced from the organizers (which basically defeats the purpose of ‘live results’).

17. What Are the Best Bhootnath Matka Tips and Tricks?

Because we strongly believe in playing lottery only in legal and responsible ways, these are the best Bhootnath Matka tips and tricks we can currently suggest:

  • Keep in mind that this game type has been outlawed nationwide in India. The monetary penalty for playing it might look insignificant, but it is almost always accompanied by a jail term. So, beware!
  • Remember that gambling is a form of entertainment, not a way to make money. So if you're planning to play this Matka lottery, make sure you're doing it for the right reasons.
  • Always set a budget before you start playing. This should help you avoid overspending.
  • When you start losing, know when to stop. Don't continue to bet more money to try to recoup your losses, as this can lead to even bigger financial problems.
  • Luck plays a big role in how this game unfolds. While it can be tempting to try to come up with a winning strategy, the reality is that there is no surefire way to win. So approach the game with a realistic mindset and enjoy it for what it is.
  • Last, but not least, never ever attempt to play Bhootnath Satta Matka if you are a minor. You must be 18 years or up to be able to play it, which again, you would do illegally.

18. Is There Any Legal Bhootnath Matka App?

Currently, no legal mobile app for Bhootnath Matka is available for download. Any app claiming to offer such services is likely run by anonymous scammers looking to cheat players out of their money.

These unauthorized applications are usually poorly designed with low-quality content. Moreover, you won't find them on official app stores, which only adds to their dubious nature.

Furthermore, since these apps are not legally authorized to support payment gateways. So, you cannot deposit or withdraw money through them. In case they allow placing bets, you can only do so by contacting the owner directly through a shadily provided phone number.

The primary purpose of these platforms is to lure unsuspecting players into parting with their money in the name of playing Matka online. We strongly suggest you stay away from such unreliable apps and opt for more legitimate and regulated games instead.
