- How does the bounty system work? 1 answer
On this recent question, a user placed a 500 rp bounty.
The question has attracted four answers of which 3 shows the same net amount of upvotes.
The user didn't choose any of the answers and let the system assign the bounty.
I know that in this case only half of the bounty is given to the answer with more upvotes, but in this case, it is not clear to me why the bounty was assigned to one of the answers which has the same upvotes as the other two.
Can anybody help me understand the dynamics behind this?
