Four jolly men sat down to play

Question: Four jolly men sat down to play, they played all night until the break of day.
They played for cash and not for fun, with a separate score for every one.
When it came time to square accounts, they all made quite fair amounts.
Not one lost and all gained.

Now that you've heard, can you explain?

They could actually have been gambling men who all gained if they all ended up with the same amount of bills they started playing with and if at the same time that currency's value somehow rose everywhere.
