How Netflix Roulette Comes into Existence? A Story of Netflixer’s Struggle

How Netflix Roulette Comes into Existence

In the year 2014, an 18-year guy named Andrew Sampson had trouble finding new shows on Netflix. He tries to find any tool that does that for him but he finds nothing.

At last, he built an online web tool that suggests the users what to watch based on the genre and format (movie or shows) that the users choose. 

In his tool, after selecting the gene and format, the users have to click on the “Spin” button to get their recommended selection. 

This tool had only two selection parameters, but it became viral among regular Netflix audiences. 

However, in 2017, the company name “Reelgood” asked the Sampson for Roulette API, and the company acquired it. Because Sampson was not interested in maintaining the service as it takes a lot of time to him.

And whenever possible, I always sign up using a sign-up form where I can manually put the email address and password. Comment! What do you think about this?

There are three entities that you have to fill in the Reelgood’s sign up form. These are:

  • Full Name
