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 interactive media, and revealing the outcomes 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 select a real-world wager based on one or more wager parameters that specify one or more aspects of the wager. In some instances, the user may directly specify some of the foregoing parameters and the system may select other ones of the foregoing parameters. For example, the user may identify a particular horse race on which to place the real-world wager and the system may select the winner, an amount of the wager, etc.
