Scoring variations

Paying method – To winner only

Typically used in the Japanese and Chinese Mah Jong. This paying method emphasizes the need to go out (or build a ready hand) as early as possible. There is no reward for an ambitious effort if you lose.  

To enable paying to winner only:
  1. Choose Preferences on the File menu.
  2. Choose a customized rule preset from the Rule presets list.
  3. Choose Payments under the Scoring section in the category tree of the Preferences dialog box.
  4. From the Pay method drop-down list, choose To Winner Only.
