General Point, and Block & Draw Domino Games Gambling

Many Point and Block & Draw domino games are played to a fixed number of points (say 100, 150, 200 or 250) and if you want to play for stakes, then players can simply put a fixed wager amount into a pot (or pool) at the start of a game, with the overall winner of the game collecting it once he has reached the target total.

An alternative method is for the winner of a game collecting a fixed cash amount per point for the difference between their point total and all the losing players' point totals at the end of a game. When gambling using this method, it might be a good idea to play for small denominations of cash per point (pennies or cents, for example).
