Incremental Loss Recovery Plan


This incremental loss recovery plan is designed to cover your betting losses in a less aggressive (compared to plain Martingale) manner.

The triggers in this example will lay on a selection with the predefined rank (where the favourite has rank 1, second favourite - rank 2 and so on). But you can also rework them to back.

You lay on the the chosen selection according to a staking plan. You start with a fixed percentage of your bank. After each loss, add the amount of the starting bet to the next bet. After each win, you decrease the next bet by a percentage of the starting bet, unless the bet is already equal to its initial size.

Example: if you start by laying £10 and the reduction percentage is set to 30%, then the sequence will look like this:

10 (Win), 10 (Loss), 20 (Win), 14 (Win), 9.8 (Win), 6.86 (Loss), 16.86 (Win), 11.80 (Win) and so on.
