FAQs

I've connected my accounts and I'm watching an eligible live-stream. Why am I not winning anything?

Our partners ultimately determine which eligible viewers will win based on the rules for each stream. The rules may vary by partner.  
To make sure you’re eligible, make sure you’ve linked accounts and are watching on your computer, the YouTube mobile app, or our mobile website. You won’t be eligible for rewards if you watch with picture-in-picture or embedded players.

How do I know if I won anything?

Rewards will be distributed to your partner game account after you've won. These rewards may take up to a day to appear. Learn more directly from the partner website.

Is this feature available on mobile?

Rewards are available on desktop web, the mobile app, and on our mobile website m.youtube.com. You will not be eligible for rewards if you watch on picture-in-picture or embedded players.

I can't connect my account. What should I do?

First, check that you're logged in. You may need to enable pop-ups in your browser to connect your accounts. If you can't connect on Safari, please try another browser. 
Note: You can only connect personal accounts, not brand accounts. Make sure you’re logged into a personal account when trying to connect.

What type of information is shared between Google and my game account when I connect my account?

After you connect your account to YouTube, YouTube will share your viewing information, and the partner may share basic account information with Google or YouTube. This will let us know which accounts are eligible for drops.
