According to the community FAQ, backticks and inline links are available for the bounty remark.

What other formatting features of Markdown are also supported on Bounty remarks?

Bounty notices will support our Markdown mini format, using the same format as we allow for comments, with the addition of paragraph breaks. The following will be allowed:

_italic_ and **bold** text,
inline `code in backticks`,
and [basic links](http://example.com).

and paragraph breaks

Which would produce:

italic and bold text, inline code in backticks, and basic links.

and paragraph breaks

Paragraph breaks (double-line) are rendered, but not single-line breaks. Support for paragraph breaks was added in February 2020.

If you want additional formatting, you'll need to get creative. For example, you could implement some simple bullet points with some Unicode characters:

Some simple pseudo-bullet points:

⠀⠀●⠀First point

⠀⠀●⠀Second point

⠀⠀⠀⠀●⠀First sub-point: Note, however, that any lines which are wrapped within the bullet point will not be indented. So, this won't look the same as an actual unordered list.

The text used for the above pseudo-bullet point example is:

⠀⠀●⠀First point

⠀⠀●⠀Second point

⠀⠀⠀⠀●⠀First sub-point: Note, however, that any lines which are wrapped within the bullet point will not be indented. So, this won't look the same as an actual unordered list.

    Comments also allow for the [tag:feature-request], feature-request thingy. Not that I ever used those, but curious: are they supported too?

    Note that title attributes (that are rendered as hover text for the link) are part of the advanced links and so putting them in a bounty notice will mangle the text. Jan 29 '13 at 19:11

    It would be nice if there was a "help" link next to the bounty notice input box, like there is for comment input boxes.
