Are all cue balls the same?

No. In addition to slight difference between models and /manufacturers, there are generally 3 type of cue balls. The normal regulation play ball that is not intended for use on a coin operated table is most common and is what should be used to learn and practice cue ball control. Cue balls made for use in coin operated machines need a way to be released so they are not captured like the numbered balls - so, these cue balls are either larger (no longer common) or have a metallic center (slightly heavier than a standard cue ball).

The rules are very straight as to whichever player scores more points in the frame wins the points. If your hit is a foul then the other player gets penalty points. The difference between snooker and billiards are below: Billiards is played with three balls i.e. white, red and yellow whereas snooker is played with 15 red balls, six colored balls and one white cue ball. This is the biggest difference between them and there are many differences in rules too.
