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 a reveal a payout using different measures of value. For example, the system may reveal the payout as a cash reward (e.g., “defeat an enemy in a game and win two dollars”), an in-game reward (e.g., “defeat an enemy in a game and win a thermite bomb”), a multimedia reward (e.g., “defeat an enemy in a game and win two music downloads”), and/or other value.
