What are the differences between scoring styles?

Standard Scoring:

Each new game starts off at 0 points.  Each card moved to the foundation receives 10 points. Each card that is moved to a tableau column receives 5 points.  Each card that is turned over in the tableau column receives 5 points.  Each undo request is a loss of 2 points in addition to the points that are subtracted from undoing a move.  When the Draw 3 option is on, there is a loss of 20 points for each pass through the stock pile after the 3rd time.  When the Draw 3 option is off, there is a loss of 100 points for each pass through the stock pile.  For timed games only: there is a loss of 2 points for every 10 seconds of play; a bonus is awarded if the game is won. Bonus points are based on the time taken to win the game; shorter games receive larger bonuses.  Bonus points are calculated with the formula of 700,000 / (seconds to win the game).  If the game takes less than 25 seconds, bonus points are awarded the same amount as a 25 second game.

 

Vegas Scoring:

The objective is to earn more points than is wagered.  Each game is started with a debt of -52 points representing the score.  Each card moved to the foundation piles is worth +5 points.  When the Draw 3 option is on, 3 passes are allowed through the stock pile; otherwise only one pass is allowed.  When the Vegas cumulative option is on, then the point total is maintained between games.  When the Vegas cumulative option is off, then the point total is reset at the start of each new game.
