Having too many options to choose from can be both good and bad. Oftentimes, it can lead to indecision. Let’s take for example Netflix. Its robust library of movies sometimes makes it difficult for you to know which one is worth your time at the moment.
Hence, the need for some sort of regular recommendation on the best movies to watch.
So, if you are tired of having the same suggestions all the time on Netflix, with nothing tangible being offered at the end, this article is for you.
Here, we introduce the savior of the day “Netflix Roulette”. A tool that never runs out of good movie suggestions for you anytime, and any day.
Let’s get started.

What is Netflix Roulette?
Netflix Roulette is an online tool that allows you to randomly select a movie to watch based on key details that you enter. It’s like an online spin wheel that lets you spin movies to discover the best of which to watch based on the information you enter.
Netflix Roulette was launched in 2014 by Andrew Sampson, a Reddit user, who built the service to enable Netflix users to choose a genre of movie to see before spinning.
In 2017, Reelgood company acquired Roulette from Sampson and made it even better. Thanks to their massive search engine, users can now filter movies based on IMDB scores and rotten tomatoes ratings to remove contents that may end up being a waste of time.
More so, Reelgood added other streaming services like Amazon Prime Video and Hulu into the mix. This means that you have a more extensive catalog to choose from and are not limited to just Netflix.
All you have to do is to choose which streaming service you want to watch from, then enter other details like genre, and watch the magic happen.
Netflix Roulette is not limited to your computer, as you can use it on any device. Below is how to do so.
How to Use Netflix Roulette
Using Netflix Roulette is pretty much very easy. As a matter of fact, you don’t need to register/sign up to be able to spin movies. However, if you plan to use it for a long time, you may want to consider signing up.
More so, you can link your streaming services to your Reelgood account. That way, any movie you select on Reelgood goes straight to your streaming service.
Follow the steps below to use the roulette.
#1. Go to Reelgood.com
#2. Select the genre of movie you want to see from the drop-down list.
#3. Check or uncheck the movies and TV shows checkbox based on what you want to see at the moment. Whether it’s a movie, a show, or both.
#4. Select the rating scores you want from the IMDB drop-down list or the Relgood list.
#5. Select Spin.
#6. Select “Watch Now” to go directly to your streaming service where you can watch it, or if you’ve seen the recommended movie before, you can choose to spin it again.
How to Add Other Streaming Services to Your Roulette
If you want to get movie recommendations from services other than Netflix, like Hulu, HBO, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney, then it’s possible to add them to your Roulette.
Follow the steps below to do so.
#1. Select Add More Services in the upper right corner of the page.
#2. Select the (+plus) button next to the streaming service of your choice to add them to your Roulette. Any streaming service you choose will be shown in purple. If you want to remove it, you can just select it again to remove it.
#3. Select SAVE
#4. After saving, you’d return to the Roulette page, and all the streaming services you selected will appear on the top of your screen.

Netflix’s shuffle play feature has officially rolled out. The “Play Something” button, which Netflix has been testing since last year, will automatically pick a TV show or film for you to watch. However, the selection criteria for Play Something isn’t completely random like a normal shuffle button.
Instead of the star rating next to each title, Netflix users will see a personalized percentage “match score.” That’s a prediction “of what Netflix thinks you may enjoy watching, based on your unique tastes,” Cameron Johnson, the company’s director of product innovation, wrote in a blog post.
Using the Android mobile app, you can find the Play Something icon on the app’s home screen and in the 17th row (though this might change in the future, so use the persistent icon for easy accessibility).
Find ‘Play Something’ at the top of your homepage: You can select the Play Something option on the top of your Netflix home page and scroll until you find whatever you wish to watch.
