08961300 is referenced by 27 patents and cites 128 patents.

The invention relates to systems and methods of selecting and placing real-world wagers responsive to one or more wager triggers, obtaining outcomes of the real-world wagers, facilitating user interactions with various interactive media, and revealing the outcomes of the real-world wagers through the interactive media to give an appearance that the outcomes of the real-world wagers resulted from the user interactions. The system may leverage the foregoing features to provide wager-enabled promotions. For example, a promotion such as an advertisement may be wager-enabled such that selecting the advertisement provides an opportunity to place a wager. An outcome of the wager may be predefined and based on an outcome of a real-world wager that was already determined. Thus, the user may be given the impression that the outcome of the real-world wager resulted from interaction with the promotion.
