08968104 is referenced by 27 patents and cites 129 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 even though the outcomes resulted from the real-world wagers and were determined before the user interactions. The system may trigger reveals based on multiplayer interactions, such as, for example, a player-versus-player (“PvP”) interaction, a tournament interaction, a massively multiplayer online (“MMO”) interaction, and/or other types of multiplayer interactions. Regardless of the type of multiplayer interaction, the system may manage reveals based on an individual user's unrevealed balance, which includes payouts resulting from real-world wagers (and/or other value) that have not yet been revealed to the user.
