A system and method for allowing multiple players to place independent wagers on a single game is disclosed. The game may be played on either a gaming machine or at a gaming event. A main player is physically located at a system operator, such as a casino. Additional players may join the main player and place wagers on the games that the main player is playing. The wagers that the additional players place are treated and paid out independently from the wagers placed by the main player. Furthermore, the players and the main player may communicate with each other throughout the betting process. The gaming machine may have an input module, an output module, a communication module, and a processor that all allow multiple players to place independent wagers on a single game.
