Auction End Times and Last Call
The Showhorse.com simulation auctions have sniper protection. If there has been a bid on an animal in the past ten minutes, the auction will not close. This allows all users waiting on the results to have a reasonable amount of time to place another bid if their bid is beaten in the last seconds of the sale.
Under this system an auction could theoretically go on forever if there are continual bids every ten minutes.
Please remember, if you bid the maximum you are willing to pay the proxy bid system will only use the amount that you need to win the auction.
