A side that takes at least as many tricks as its bid calls for receives a score equal to 10 times its bid. Additional tricks (overtricks) are worth an extra one point each.
Sandbagging rule: Overtricks are known as bags. If a team reaches to 10 bags, the team will have -100 penalty points and the total bag amount will be reset to 0. Any bags beyond ten are carried over to the next cycle of ten overtricks.
If a team wins fewer tricks than the bid made, they lose 10 times of their bid.
If a bid of Nil is successful, the nil bidder's side receives 100 points. This is in addition to the score won (or lost) by the partner of the nil bidder for tricks made. If a bid of nil fails - that is, the bidder takes at least one trick - the bidder's side loses 100 points, but still receives any amount scored for the partner's bid.
A bid of Blind nil scores twice as much as an ordinary nil - it wins 200 points if successful and loses 200 points if it fails.
The team which reaches to 300, 400 or 500 (depending on the Rooms) wins.
