Frequently Asked Questions

How do I play the game?
Spin the Bottle is played just like the classic party game, only this time it’s with real people from your area that are looking to meet. Here’s how it works:

  1. With the swipe of a finger, you’ll give the bottle your best spin and watch on as the bottle rotates past potential matches.
  2. When the bottle stops, you’ll enter into a 30 second video date where you can chat up your potential match.
  3. If you’re feeling the love, give your date a kiss (tap the kiss icon) and see if they return the affection. If they do – it’s a match!
  4. Then you can take it to the next level and see your date’s profile, send in-app messages, video chat and more!

How do I spin the bottle?
Simply swipe your finger across the bottle to get it spinning. Good luck! :)

How do I turn the game on/off?
To turn the game on/off, tap the play/stop icon at the bottom center of the main screen.

Do I have to be in the app to play?
No! Players can land on you even when the app is closed so long as the game is turned on. Don’t worry, we’ll send you a notification to make sure you don’t miss your date!

Why am I seeing players outside my radius?
The system will always prioritize players within your radius but may occasionally look outside your radius when not enough players are online.
