# Lay Sequence Staking Plan

In Lay Sequence staking plan every betting sequence starts with a wager of 1 unit. The unit value is calculated as percent of the bank and updated at the start of the sequence. The percent value can be applied to initial, current or highest bank.

After each race the cumulative profit of the betting sequence is calculated. If the value is:

**Positive**: the staking plan moves to a new betting sequence.**Negative**: the stake is increased by 1 unit after a loss and remains unchanged after a win. In order to limit the losses in case of long losing runs, a maximum number of units can be wagered. If this number is reached, the stake value is maintained until the deficit of the betting sequence is recovered.

## Settings

The following parameters can be configured in this staking plan:

**1 unit = X% of Y bank**: the value of the unit expressed as percent of the bank.**X**: the percent value.**Y**: the type of bank to which the percent value is applied:**initial**: the percent value is applied to initial bank.**current**: the percent value is applied to current bank.**highest**: the percent value is applied to highest bank.

**Maximum units to bet**: the maximum number of units to wager.**Split total stake when multiple selections qualify**: this option splits the total stake equally among multiple selections in a race. If the option is not used the total stake is placed for each qualified selection.
