Custom Staking Buttons: Setup & Activation | Betfair Trading

Staking Buttons

We get a lot of questions about staking options and particularly the staking buttons within the Geeks Toy Software.

To resolve this issue we’ve created this article (and the accompanying video).

Check it out and follow along where necessary!

How to Customise Staking Buttons

There are several points of interest when customising your setup:

  • Turning the staking buttons on and off (show/hide)
  • Changing the numerical values of each button
  • Understanding the different button types

Jump to around 40 seconds in and they’re addressed one-by-one.


As mentioned in the clip, you can find your own settings folder on the file path below:

C:\ProgramData\AGeeksToy\AGeeksToy\Settings – Betfair

Note: It’s advisable to make a backup before you start changing things!

Once you’ve implemented changes make sure you re-load the profile. Otherwise, the new staking buttons will not be displayed.

The different staking modes:

  • Stake – like a traditional bet.
  • Liability – the amount you stand to lose.
  • Book Profit – ensures tick values are similar.
  • Tick Profit – the value of change between tick increments (unhedged).
  • Payout – total to return.

  1. Thanks for this one Caan, l knew you could change the fixed stakes but l didn’t know how to do it. These new blog posts are good for both long term users like myself and new traders, cheers.

  2. it’s not working for me. My first two default buttons are 2 and 5, but they’re not even in there when I go and try and ammend the code.
