Popcorn Bidding

If a bid is placed in the last 5 minutes of an auction, the auction end time will extend for an additional 3 minutes. This is called "Popcorn Bidding" and gives all bidders an equal chance of winning an auction if a last minute bid is placed.

Popcorn Bidding is used to simulate a live auction and prevents other bidders from "sniping" an auction at the last second.
