Cutthroat Pool Cue Ball Scratch Pocketing Last Ball

What happens when you scratch on the cue ball during the last shot in cutthroat billiards?

During the last shot, the player made the shot but then the cue-ball continued to roll into the pocket.

Does the scratch count or is the game over as soon as the object ball drops in the pocket?

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    Are you playing cutthroat billiards on a coin-op pool table or a standard pocket billiards pool table?

    Playing cutthroat pool on a standard pocket billiard tables, your inning is over, and each player gets to spot one of their balls, and play passes to the next player in the rotation.

    Playing cutthroat pool on a coin-op pool table, you would lose, simply because of the inability to remove balls after they are pocketed. Generally how play cutthroat billiards on a coin-op is like this:

    If you make either opponents' balls, you continue. If you miss, you lose your turn. If you scratch, you lose your turn. Scratch on the winning shot, you lose.

    Obviously, it has to be a loss for the person that scratched because you can't retrieve the ball.

    Unfortunately I can't point you toward any specific official rule set that spells all of this out in detail though.
