Every time I go to a game in the GAMES section, it says to go to my settings –> Chat —> Use Java
Every time I do, it says I lost connection and when I go to the game it says the same process. The thing is... every other site works for me, I only lost connection on spin. This must be some kind of glitch.

Website programming doesn't naturally support creating socket connections, always-on pipelines used to communicate from one place(website, program) to a server. 3rd party objects need to be created and imported onto the website, such as a Java applet or a Flash object(most online games are made in Flash, video players).
I don't even know how Spinchat's non-Java solution works, I haven't looked into it much. However the game graphics themselves use Java and I'm assuming also the Java socket connection. So, if Java does not work on your computer, switching to the Java setting would break both the games and your standard chat connection.
I would suggest as a first step, to reinstall Java.
