The Spin Wheel widget is a tool from Streamlabs that is designed to encourage passive viewers to participate in your stream by awarding them with random prizes.

The Spin Wheel is intended to gamify your live stream by providing viewers with the opportunity to earn awards, which will encourage them to return. This is a tangible addition to any streamer’s toolkit and will result in a more enjoyable stream for everyone.

On this page, you have full control over the items you want to include in your Spin Wheel. 

Categories

You can add new items to your spin wheel by using the categories sections. T-shirts, mousepads, and water bottles are included by default, but you can change them to whatever you want.

Section Weights 

Section Weight determines how small or large each section of the Spin Wheel is. The higher the number, the larger the section. The lower the number the smaller the section. 

As you scroll down the page, you’ll find more customization options to edit, such as font size, text color, the speed of the Spin Wheel, and even the image of the ticker or the image displayed in the center of the wheel.
