Consider forfeit, that is given up or performed by the player losing the game or committing a fault.

In your first example, the second sentence would be “What forfeit will you pay ?”.

Example: Jamie Carragher (Liverpool FC) has agreed to suffer the forfeit of wearing a Manchester United shirt after losing a bet with Gary Neville that relates to Tottenham midfielder Paulinho.
