What Is Netflix Roulette?

Netflix Roulette is just what it sounds like—an online randomizer tool that picks a show or movie for you based on a few key details you enter. This tool is offered by Reelgood, which is an entertainment streaming hub that helps people search and discover content on their favorite streaming platforms.

How to Use Netflix Roulette

You don't need to register for a free Reelgood account to use Netflix Roulette, but you might want to sign up for one anyway if you plan on using it regularly. You can link your streaming services to your Reelgood account, then easily select any TV show or movie on Reelgood to go straight to your corresponding streaming service where you can watch it.

  1. Navigate to reelgood.com/roulette/netflix in a web browser.

  2. Select the genre you're interested in from the dropdown list.

    You can only select one genre at a time.

  3. Check or uncheck the TV Shows checkbox and/or the Movies checkbox depending on whether you're interested in watch a show, a movie or both.

  4. Select the minimum rating scores you want from the IMDB dropdown list and/or the Rotten Tomatoes dropdown list. You can select a minimum score of five (IMDB) or 50% (Rotten Tomatoes) and up to a maximum of nine (IMDB) or 90% (Rotten Tomatoes).

    Select No Score if you're open to seeing any TV show or movie suggestions regardless of their ratings.

  5. Select SPIN.

  6. See what comes up, then either select Watch to go directly to Netflix where you can watch it, or select More Info to read more about it.

    If you don't like the TV show or movie that Netflix Roulette gave you, you can spin again to get other results.

How to Add Other Streaming Services to Your Roulette

If you want to see more TV shows and movies from services other than Netflix, you can easily add Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO, Disney+, and more to your Roulette.

  1. Select Edit in the top center of the screen. (There should be a small Netflix logo beside it.)

  2. Select the plus (+) next to any streaming service to add them to your Roulette. Any streaming services you add will be highlighted in purple. If you change your mind about adding one, just select it again to remove it.

    If you'd like to add all of them to your Roulette, select + Add All in the top right.

  3. Select SAVE at the bottom.

  4. You'll be brought back to the Roulette page and you'll notice now that the logos for all the streaming services you just selected will appear at the top of the screen.

    Repeat steps two through six to use the Roulette randomizer tool with the other streaming services that you selected.
