How it works

How it works
  •   not unique
  •   lowest unique bid winner
  •   unique but not lowest

PyraBid's auctions combine skills and fun to win brand new luxury products at a very cheap price. At the end of the auction, the person who has placed the lowest unique bid, which is the lowest number with only one bid on it, wins the auction at that price only.
