Lay 1 Point Staking Plan

The Lay 1 Point staking plan starts by placing a bet of 1 unit. The value of the unit is calculated as percent of the initial bank and remains unchanged during the betting session. The following rules apply:

Rule 1 – The equivalent in units for the race profit/loss is determined:

profit = raceProfitLoss / unitValue

where:

• raceProfitLoss = profit/loss for the race.
• unitValue = value of the unit.
• profit = equivalent in units for the race profit/loss. If the computed value is not integer, it is rounded to the nearest integer.

Rule 2 – After each race a debit is calculated using the following formula:

current debit = previous debit + 1 – profit

where:

• current debit = debit calculated after the current race.
• previous debit = debit calculated after the previous race.
• 1 = 1 unit.
• profit = equivalent in units for the race profit/loss.

Rule 3 – The stake is increased by 1 unit after each race.

Rule 4 – If the new stake is greater than (current debit + 1) then it will be reduced to (current debit + 1).

Rule 5 – If current debit becomes less than or equal to zero then the stake returns to 1 unit.

Settings

The following parameters can be configured in this staking plan:

• 1 unit = X% of initial bank: the value of the unit expressed as percent of the initial bank.
• X: the percent value.

Lay 1 Point Example

Let’s assume the following settings:

• Initial bank: £200
• 1 unit = 2% of initial bank (£4)

Step 1

• current debit = 0
• number of units to bet is 1
• total stake is £4
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 5
• bet wins and the profit is £4 (1 unit)
• current bank is £204

Step 2

• current debit = 0 + 1 – 1 = 0
• number of units to bet is 1
• total stake is £4
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 3
• bet losses and the loss is £8 (2 unit)
• current bank is £196

Step 3

• current debit = 0 + 1 + 2 = 3
• number of units to bet is 2
• total stake is £8
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 4
• bet losses and the loss is £24 (6 unit)
• current bank is £172

Step 4

• current debit = 3 + 1 + 6 = 10
• number of units to bet is 3
• total stake is £12
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 3
• bet losses and the loss is £24 (6 units)
• current bank is £148

Step 5

• current debit = 10 + 1 + 6 = 17
• number of units to bet is 4
• total stake is £16
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 5
• bet wins and the profit is £16 (4 units)
• current bank is £164

Step 6

• current debit = 17 + 1 – 4 = 14
• number of units to bet is 5
• total stake is £20
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 4
• bet wins and the profit is £20 (5 units)
• current bank is £184

Step 7

• current debit = 14 + 1 – 5 = 10
• number of units to bet is 6
• total stake is £24
• 1 selection qualifies at decimal odds of 3
• bet wins and the profit is £24 (6 units)
• current bank is £208
