The Maria Staking Plan is so called after a username on a forum thread that turned £3000 into £100,000 in only 303 days in real-time. In total there were 3547 wins from 4131 selections which meant a 85.88% strike rate. Like all staking plans which are essentially mathematical formulas, The Maria staking plan can be broken down into simple rules.
Rule 1 - Lay Different Amounts Depending on the Odds.
|Odds Range||% Bank to Lay|
|Less Than or Equal to 3.5||1%|
|Greater Than Or Equal to 3.6 but Less Than or Equal to 7.4||0.6%|
|Greater Than or Equal to 7.5 but Less Than or Equal to 11||0.4%|
|Greater Than 11||0%|
The following example is based on a starting bank of £3000.
You can see in Bet 1 the odds are 8. The Stake is 0.4% of £3000 which is £12.
You can see in Bet 2 the odds are 4. The Stake is 0.6% of £3000 which is £18.
You can see in Bet 3 the odds are 2.5. The Stake is 1% of £3000 which is £30.
You can see in Bet 4 the odds are 12. The Stake is 0% of £3000 which is £0.
Rule 2 - If making profits, the stakes are increased on a daily basis in proportion to the betting bank on a daily basis.
For instance, if after day 1 the betting bank is at £3300 then 1% would now be £33 rather than £30.
Rule 3 - If after a days betting the cumulative betting bank has decreased the stakes are left alone unless 35% of the highest level of the bank is lost.
If this occurs then the stakes are re-calculated based on the new "65%-sized bank" For example if your using £3000 as your starting betting bank, you would keep the same stakes used until your betting bank went below £1,950 when those backer's stakes would become £19.50, £11.70 and £7.80 until the bank gets back up to £3,000 again (or - even down to £1267.50 - a further 35% loss). The 35% drop is always worked out from the highest point of the bank.
