Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Wiki

Added in Repentance

Spin to Win is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.


  • While the item is held, grants a spinning top orbital that blocks enemy shots and deals contact damage (3.5 per tick, or 35 per second).
  • While the item is being used, gives Isaac +0.5 speed and increases the contact damage on Isaac's familiars, even if they do not normally deal any. Additionally, orbital familiars spin much faster and knock back both enemies and Isaac when they deal damage.
    • The contact damage improves to (1.5 x contact damage + 6). If a familiar has no contact damage naturally, it still receives the +6.
    • Blue flies and blue spiders are also affected, and don't disappear while the item is in use.
    • The recharge timer is gradually drained over 3 seconds while the item is being used.
      • Isaac can stop using Spin to Win at any time by releasing the use item button, at which point Spin to Win starts recharging.
      • Spin to Win can be used while it is not fully charged, gradually draining however much charge there is.


  • Isaac's effective speed can be higher than 2.0 while the item is active, even if the stat is capped.


  • Book of Virtues Book of Virtues: Generates up to eight wisps while charging the item, which are immediately extinguished once the charge runs out. The fire rate of the wisps is based on the speed they're rotating.
  • Gnawed Leaf Gnawed Leaf: Gnawed Leaf will activate while using Spin to Win, as long as Isaac is stationary. This allows for a brief moment of high damage against enemies that chase Isaac.
  • The Forgotten The Forgotten: While playing as The Soul The Soul, channeling Spin to Win will cause the Forgotten's skeleton to deal contact damage.
  • Taurus Taurus: Spin to Win's speed boost instantly triggers the item's invincibility effect.
  • Pluto Pluto: The exceedingly high speed and small hitbox enables Isaac to clip into obstacles such as rocks or pits, allowing him to effectively fly over them. Requires a running start, so Isaac can potentially get stuck, requiring a reload of the save.


  • BFFS! BFFS!: The +6 contact damage bonus is not increased. Most notably, this means familiars without natural contact damage do not gain additional damage, and others gain less than expected.
  • Mom's Razor Mom's Razor: Mom's Razor deals a fixed 16.5 contact damage, instead of its usual damage-scaled value, while Spin to Win is active.
  • Tainted Forgotten Tainted Forgotten: Unlike the non-tainted counterpart, Tainted Forgotten's body gains no extra contact damage while Spin to Win is active. Additionally, Tainted Forgotten's contact damage familiars have only 80% of their usual damage.
  • Void Void: After absorbing Spin to Win, using Void spawns a temporary, passive Spin to Win familiar for the room. It cannot be activated further for the damage and speed bonuses.

  • The term 'spin to win' is a term that is associated with RNG based games, specifically ones that utilize a game show wheel.
    • The pattern on the top is reminiscent to a multicolored game show wheel, which further cements the origin of the name.
  • Spin to Win's item description of 'Let it Rip' is the tagline for Beyblade, which is a toy line and anime centered around battling tops.
  • Spin to Win, Larynx Larynx, and Everything Jar Everything Jar are the only activated items that can be used when not fully charged.


PC Normal and hard modes only PATP PBMS (Treasure Room adjacent to spawn)

Bug Bug! With Book of Virtues Book of Virtues, leaving a room just before the item's charge runs out causes all wisps generated by Spin to Win to remain with Isaac, and will retain their very high fire rate.
  • The wisps will orbit at their normal speed rather than the increased speed.
  • Upon entering an uncompleted boss room, all wisps from this effect are extinguished immediately.
