It's played like rotation. 1,5,10,15 balls are money balls or ways plus total points from numbers on balls you pocket(you need 61 points or more for a way). There are 5 ways total. Rack 15 balls...1-ball is head-ball...2 & 3 ball on back two ends. Put the 5,10, and 15 in middle of rack.

Let's say your playing for $1 a way to make it easy. I sink the 1,5, and 10...you sink the 15 and 61 total ways. You owe me 1 way ($1).

If you play partners and I sink the 1-ball and you sink the 5-ball we become partners. If I sink the 1 and 5 then the 10-ball becomes the partner ball. There are other ways to play the game in different parts of the country...but I hope this gives you an idea. It's a great game to pass the time. Johnnyt

Not the pay-ball I know, Johnny. It's a ring game, you get paid X for every ball you make and Y if you run the rack. There used to be some great $20 and $40 pay-ball games in the Greenway in Baton Rouge.

I was under the impression that payball was essentially 6-ball on a snooker table

LMAO. Sorry I was thinking of what we call money ball in New York. The pay/money confused me...it don't take much now a days. Johnnyt

The way it was explained to me, played with the just the colored Snooker balls or regular pool balls 1-6. The game is played on a Snooker table. So much for each ball and double for a runout. I've never heard of it being played for less than $20 a ball. Used to hear of this being played a lot at Hard Times. I think it was cuemaker Bill Stroud who explained the game to me.

Bill should know how to play the game, he used to play it and all games JAM-UP.

We used to play the game for $1 and $2 when we were kids on a 5X10 snooker table in Jackson. It can be played for any amount.
