Normally no points are paid if the deal ends in a draw.
However, both Japanese and Western versions of Mah Jong allow occasionally payments after a draw. E.g., modern Japanese rules allow fixed payments for ready hands, and the French rules allow regular payments for all completed patterns.
- For ready hands only. Pays only for hands that are ready (i.e., where only one tile is needed to complete the hand). No ready declaration is required. If there are structural restrictions for the winning hand (prohibition of mixed suit, maximum number of Chows, or Limit/Special hand requirement), the ready hand (or more exactly the best possible winning hand that can be made out of the hand) must meet these requirements. As for possible minimum point requirement, you can specify whether it is required from a ready hand by using the Check true ready state of the hand option.
Note: If the rules specify that only the winner is paid, this option is automatically enabled and pool must be specified.
- Pool. Setting the value of this option to 0 applies regular payments for ready hands (using the scoring values specified for losers). Specifying any other value enables the rule where a total of specified amount of points is paid to players having a ready hand by players not having a ready hand. For details, see the example below. The value must be divisible by 3 and smaller than 10,000.
Note: If the rules specify that only the winner is paid, the pool must be specified.
Note: If neither of the above two options is specified, all players are paid according to the value of their hands (using the scoring values specified for losers).
