Battle of the Bids allows customers to bet on Ten-X bids. Participants select up to ten properties in each round and bet what they think each will sell – the closer each bet is to the winning bid amount at the end of the auction, the more points they earn. In each of the eight rounds, more than 500 winners will claim prizes ranging from $100 to $100,000. The Battle of the Bids player who accumulates the most points across all rounds will become the grand prize winner and take home $1 million, plus an additional $100,000 to donate to a charity of their choice.
