Matatu is the only most popular Ugandan made app on both the Google Play Store and App Store and today, Kola Studios has announced the launch of a new play-for-cash version of the game called Matatu Champion. This new game allows people to play their favorite game with the added excitement of winning real cash.
Players can choose from a selection of 3 different money matches; UGX 500, UGX 2,000 and UGX 5,000. Once one of these games is unlocked, a player’s money is on the line and they must try to play all their cards before the opponent in order to win the game. The lucky winner takes all and the loser goes empty.
The features and gameplay are all pulled straight from the original Matatu game with additional functions allowing the possibility to make a deposit, play games with the cash, 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 on either Airtel Money or MTN mobile money or else they will not be able to deposit cash and unlock any game.
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. You can learn how to play the game using the instructions in the screenshot below.
The decision to launch a play-for-cash version of Matatu 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.
