Have you ever logged onto Netflix, ready to watch something, and instead found yourself staring blankly at your screen, endlessly scrolling through options, unable to make up your mind? If you haven’t, you’re almost definitely in a teeny tiny minority. For those of us with severe indecision, there’s now Netflix Roulette to help take the heavy weight of responsibility out of our hands.

So, what is Netflix Roulette? How does it work? Will it make your life easier? Read on for a full breakdown of the service from Reelgood.

Netflix is still the leading premium streaming service, with over 200 million worldwide subscribers. It offers thousands of movies and TV shows to binge watch, including its always growing list of original films and series, including Stranger Things, The Witcher, Bridgerton, and many more.

How to play Netflix Roulette

Netflix Roulette is pretty easy to use. Just head over to the Reelgood website to get started.

Once there, you can simply hit the “spin” button and let Reelgood choose a title at random from the entire Netflix catalog. If you have some sense of what you want to watch, you can narrow the field as much as you like. You can select a genre, toggle between TV and movies or both, and set a minimum audience score if you want to watch something popular.

The service also automatically gives you the IMDb and Reelgood audience scores with every selection. You may not care what other people thought of the selection, but then again if a 2.1/10 score scares you off, there’s always the option to spin again.

Is Netflix Roulette free?

Yes! Netflix Roulette is a completely free service. It’s free on your desktop and as a mobile app.

You can use it without signing in or create a free account so that Reelgood remembers your preferences.

Can I use Netflix Roulette on my TV?

If you have a smart TV or a connected device like Apple TV, Firestick, or Roku, you can download the Reelgood app from the Apple Store or Google Play and go straight to your selection on Netflix without searching for the title you got on another device.

Maybe you’ve already exhausted your Netflix subscription and watched everything you wanted to (at least until season two of Bridgerton launches, or whatever your preference may be).

With a free Reelgood account, you can add all of your favorite streaming services to the roulette wheel, so that once you’ve set the parameters for your randomized selection, the service pulls from all of the streamers you’ve selected to help make your choice.

Every major streamer is available to add to Netflix Roulette. This includes Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, Disney Plus, Paramount Plus, Peacock, Apple TV Plus, Starz, Showtime, and more.

There’s also an option to only select from free streamers like Tubi, Crackle, and Pluto TV.
