Kola Studios, the creators behind the popular card game Matatu, has today announced the launch of a new play-for-cash version of the game they dubbed Matatu Champion; a game that allows people to play their favorite game with the added excitement of winning real cash.

The decision to launch a play-for-cash version of Matatu according to the Creators say has been greatly motivated by the constant request from players.

“For years they have been asking us to provide some sort of reward after every win and this is our response,” writes in press statement.

Players have to first deposit money to their Matatu Champion Account either by Airtel or MTN mobile money. They choose from a selection of 3 different money matches; 500, 1000 and 5000 UGX. Once one of these games is unlocked, a player’s money is on the line as they must try to play all their cards before their opponent does (The Card Rule: First Player Wins it All).

The game has been pulled straight from the original Matatu game with additional features being added to it – allowing players the possibility to make a deposit cash to their accounts in order to play the game – win and go on to redeem the cash won to their mobile money account. It is required for every player to have a mobile money account or else they will not be able to deposit cash to unlock these games.

“The Matatu Champion app has new beautiful designs that gives it a casino like feel and give the users a different experience. Constant updates will be made to improve the user experience and environment,” the Creators tell PC Tech Magazine.
