Stop at Winner (SAW) system
We continue our Betfair bot strategies series with explanation of a very popular Stop at Winner (SAW) strategy. How it works?
- Bet until you hit a winner. Then stop for the day.
- If you hit a loser, the next bet tries to recoup the loss.
- Loss is cumulative, so if you hit 3 losers in the row, 4th bet will try to recover all that loss from 3 bets.
In Betfair bots you usually find this system under SAW, Martingale or Progressive (like in 5starbot) names.
If you play with this Betfair strategy, soon you will find that if you hit losers in a row, stakes size grows dramatically. Therefore it is recommended to have at least 100 or better 200 points in your bank to cover potential bet size.
Also to fight with fast growing bets, set Reset limit that will return to your normal bet size if specific number of losers are hit in a row. Max stake size also can help keeping your bets under a reasonable level.
Good point about this Betfair bot strategy is that with a good luck you can make fixed profit every day, if winners come more or less frequently. But remember that if you get many losing bets in a row it’s likely to bust your bank in one day.
