Loss recovery in several steps, laying


This is a trigger template: you can use it to recover your loss from any staking plan on any sports when laying on a single selection.

Just choose the right type of sports and add the necessary conditions to the trigger called "laying".

Here is how the triggers behave.

The laying trigger places a bet with the defined size or defined liability (both can be set using the constants).

If the bet loses, it divides the loss by the specified number of steps and adds that value to the next bet. For example, if you laid £10 at 3.0 and lost £20, then you lay 10 + 20/4 = £15 in the next 4 events. If the loss has been recovered in full, the triggers restart the betting with the initially defined bet size/liability.

If, however, you lose another bet before you have recovered your previous loss, the new loss is added to the existing value, and the triggers again divide it by 4, repeating the above steps. Thus another cycle of loss recovery starts.

The triggers will continue along these lines until the entire loss has been recovered.

Here are some constants you can edit to adjust the settings:

mins_before_start When to start betting (minutes before the off)
init_liab Size of liability (% of current bank). Set to 0 if you want to use bet size
init_bet Size of bet size (% of current bank). Set to 0 if you want to use liability
cycle_length Number of steps in the loss recovery cycle
max_bets Maximum number of markets with simultaneous bets. Set 1 if you want 1 bet at a time.

This is a sample account statement with cycle_length = 3, init_bet = 1, starting bank = 1,000. Latest entries are in the top of the list.
