Candy Crush Saga 6 Important Tips Everyone Must Know
Whether you’re a new player looking for Candy Crush Saga cheats or a long-time player looking for some new tricks, we list six ways to get more lives in King’s addictive mobile game. Most people are aware of the time travel trick to gain more lives in Candy Crush Saga, but did you know there are other infinite life hacks for the candy-based puzzle-matching game.
With Candy Crush Saga, you start with five lives but they quickly get used up when you’re stuck on a hard level. It takes 30 minutes to receive a new life, so 2.5 hours until you get a full set of lives again, if you’re starting from zero. This is an incredibly long time to wait, especially when you think you may have finally figured out how to beat the level you’re stuck on.
So, you turn to Candy Crush Saga cheats for more lives. OK, so the first and second tips are not hacks at all but bear with us, they get better. Here are the six ways to get more lives now:
Candy Crush Saga Cheat One: Buying More Lives
The easiest way, of course, is to just pay for a full set of lives. The going rate for 5 lives right now is 12 gold bars or a little over $1. There’s a reason King rakes in an estimated $1 million a day through players not interested in real Candy Crush Saga cheats.
Candy Crush Saga Cheat Two: Ask Friends
The second way is free but requires some begging, that is asking your friends to send you more lives. A good way to get more lives from friends is to remember to give back for good Candy Crush Saga karma. You might even be lucky enough to have friends that send you more lives without you even having to ask.
But make sure to not accept the bonus lives if you have a full set of lives. For some reason, if you open and accept a life when you have 5 lives already, you don’t get 6 lives. That extra life just goes to waste.
Candy Crush Saga Cheat Three: Switch From Mobile To Desktop
If you only play Candy Crush Saga on your smartphone, you might not realize that you can also play on your desktop online on Facebook or the Candy Crush Saga site. When you use up all your lives on your mobile app, you will find a full set of lives on Facebook. Alternatively between your smartphone and desktop could give you more chances to beat the level you’re stuck on.
Incidentally, a lot of levels that are seemingly impossible to beat on your smartphone (ahem, level 750) are a cinch to beat on the desktop. Presumably when you’ve run out of lives on the desktop version, at least some of your lives on your mobile would have been restored. Switching between the regular Candy Crush Saga board and Odus’ Dreamworld is a similar trick if you want to keep playing as you’ll have another full set of lives there.
Candy Crush Saga Cheat Four: Time Travel Hack
Most people have heard of this Candy Crush cheat that involves changing the time or date of your smartphone to a future time when all your lives will have been restored but here’s exactly how to do it. On your iOS device, go to Settings > General > Date & Time and turn off Set Automatically. From there just change the time or date to sometime in the future at least 2.5 hours later and you will have full lives in Candy Crush again.
Changing the time and date might confuse some of your other apps, so if you have an appointment or alarm set it might go off. Once you’re done manipulating time, just go back to Settings > General > Date & Time and turn on Set Automatically.
Candy Crush Saga Cheat Five: Delete And Reinstall App
This hack requires you deleting and reinstalling the Candy Crush Saga app and that’s it, you’ll have full lives again when you open the app. Be sure to be signed into Facebook to make sure your progress is saved. You also want to make sure you don’t have boosters that you’ve been saving up to use.
Deleting and reinstalling the app doesn’t affect your progress or gold bars but it does delete all your boosters forever. So only perform this Candy Crush trick when you don’t have any boosters or don’t have any that you care about losing.
Candy Crush Saga Cheat Six: Download This Firefox Extension
So, this Firefox Extension totally does what it says, giving Candy Crush Saga cheaters actual infinite lives. Not just 5 lives at a time like the other hacks and not-hacks, when you play Candy Crush Saga through a Firefox browser with this extension, you get 99 lives. But after losing one life, it’s automatically restored, meaning you have an infinite supply of lives.
Aside from infinite lives, this free extension also gives players infinite boosters. You can only pick one of each of the pre-game boosters like color bombs, striped and wrapped combo and jelly fish boosters but unlimited in-game boosters like lollipop hammer, free switch, sweet teeth and bubblegum troll. But be warned, this extension makes everything so easy that it sucks all the enjoyment out of playing the game and should only be used for super impossible levels.
