Lay 1 Point Staking Plan

The Lay 1 Point Staking Plan is a low risk recovery based Staking Plan. At the start of the series your initial stake is 1 Point. The stake is increased after every bet by 1 Point regardless of whether you win or lose. When certain criteria is met the series is reset and the initial stake reverts back to 1 Point. This staking plan also works with back betting. There is a slight variation on Rule 3 to make the staking plan work the same way as the back version. 1 Point Back Staking Plan.


  • Add 1 Point to the stake after each bet regardless of a win or loss.
  • If new stake is greater than (debit + 1 Point) then new stake equals (debit + 1 point).
  • If debit is less than or equal to zero then new stake equals 1 Point.
Formula to Calculate Debit
  • Previous Debit Amount + 1 Point + (Minus Profit or Add Loss)

As always these things are always easier to understand when following an example.

In this example 1 Point = £1 and Start Bank = £100. First stake = £1.

The bet wins. The debit is calculated as Previous Debit + 1 Point – Profit.

0 + 1 – 1 = 0

Rule 1 adds 1 Point to the stake. This would make the next stake £2. However Rule 2 means that the stake cannot be larger then the debit + 1 (0 + 1 = 1). So the next stake goes back to 1 Point or £1. 

This time the bet loses. The new debit amount is calculated as before.

0 + 1 + 1 = £2

We then go through the rules again. Rule 1 increases the stake to £2. Rules 2 and 3 do not apply in this instance. The next stake is therefore £2.

The bet wins. The debit is calculated as before.

2 + 1 – 2 = £1

In TSM there are various staking plan settings you can edit. When Use Fixed Plus 1 Variable is unchecked the initial Stake is taken from the Percent % to bet setting. You can also link the initial stake to the cumulative total so that as the betting bank increases so does the value of 1 Point.
