Is the game candy crush saga rigged?

Through having experience playing the game candy crush saga, I can honestly say that yes the game is rigged in my opinion.

The game is not fair in regards to other video games where every level you play you should be able to beat using skill.

With candy crush saga the developers create the game in such a way that it may take you a very long time to even get a winnable position at a certain level, and the only reason they do this is so you pay money to progress.

I found the game quite enjoyable up to level 29, then the game seemed to start randomly giving crazy boards which were never going to be possible to complete, nevertheless, with some perseverance I managed to slowly but surely climb up the levels again (without paying).

It was after doing this and reaching other impossible levels with random no winning situations I decided enough was enough and stopped playing the game, to be honest I was bored with it by then.

I much prefer games where every level would be possible, no matter how hard it may be, but with candy crush saga that is not the case, so for me it is not a real game, and only something which will waste your own time.

Thankfully I used a hack on my galaxy s3 so I never had to wait for my lives to return. All I did when I lost all my lives was exit the game, and in settings I would change the date on my phone one day forward, I could then enter the game again and have all my lives back instantly, you can do this an unlimited amount of times.

The game has now been uninstalled, I will stick to fun challenging games where all levels are possible through skill, shame really as I don’t mind paying for add-ons in games to help with certain scenarios, however, not scenarios when the game is just rigged to give winless positions over and over.

I agree.....it feels very rigged at the high levels. I think they let you play the same level for a set amount of hours trying to get you to pay and when they don't they allow you to pass only to stall you 2 levels later. I am at level 440 and haven't spent a dime but pretty close to resigning. It's a huge time suck overall and it really is pissing me off to get one jelly away. I admit I'm addicted but I refuse to pay for specials cuz they do NOT guarantee a pass!

There is absolutely no strategy to win this game. Its a scam. Its all based on whether or not the game wants you to win. The one thing that drives me nuts is when you get a special candy and the game forces you to use it when you have no other moves. A special candy should be a bonus move but its not. Also when the game knows you're about to get 5 candies in a row, other candies start dropping and ruin it. Im on level 88 and I haven't spent a cent. Never will.

It's astonishing the amount of times friends have complained to me about a certain level only for me to have a try and complete it easily for them. The game is not all just luck, requires skill also, and the ability to look ahead.

Many people just randomly move all the time without fully thinking.

How can anyone enjoy this pointless game, or even give it money is beyond me???

1) The game is not a game of skill, it's not like you do things and progress, this game decides when you get a board or not which is winnable.

2) It's created to make as much money as possible. That's not how proper games are meant to be played.

At least if you have to play, please never pay to do that. I got so angry with my sister after seeing she spent almost 50 on it in 1 month. I also fear things like this could lead other people to other gambling additions in the future. Also are they monitoring who plays and pays money, as my sister is not even 15 yet, and I know all her friends play this also.

I find to have the most difficulty with levels when I am playing and it's on a Friday evening or sometime over weekend. It's like the game knows I have just been paid by my work so is making life difficult for me so I pay for assistance.

My friend said the exact same thing happens to her as well. It could all just be coincidence, but then again, it could all not.

Sep 03, 2013 by Katharina Wallenborg

I have mixed feelings whether the game is completely rigged or not, let me explain.

When I first started playing candy crush I struggled with quite a few of the earlier levels, and even though I enjoyed playing each day the game was quite frustrating for me. One day I had to reset my mobile phone back to factory settings so I lost everything.

I noticed the second time playing the game (from the beginning), I was easily beating all the levels I had major problems with the first time around, and I realised this was due to me having a better knowledge of the game i.e. creating special candies, looking ahead of the board to create winning moves etc, so this makes me have mixed feeling whether it’s rigged or not.

Definitely with experience you do get better at the game. I ask anyone to restart the game from the start after you have been playing for a while, I guarantee you will sail through a lot of the levels which caused you so much difficulty in the past.

No question the game is designed so you spend now and then, something I have resisted from doing thankfully. But rigged? I don’t know for certain.

It's rigged. Like the author, I too have been forever stuck on level 29. But unlike the author, I'm still there. It's possible that with the growing popularity of the game the creators are deliberately trying to cash in and make it impossible (for antsy people) to move on without paying up. This game is hot right now, but it won't last forever. Especially under these circumstances.

Jul 30, 2013 by Dana

I don’t think the game candy crush is rigged because I initially thought this when I was only playing it via my mobile phone, but when I switched to playing it on Facebook as well I quickly progressed through all the levels I was playing.

The game requires cooperation from other players to speed things up, and what a big difference to my overall playing experience having help from friends, and not to mention all the extra lives.

Also I noticed that with playing it on Facebook I was able to take part in a lot of missions for other games, and in return they rewarded me with free hammers, full sets of lives, and other features.

Am enjoying it much more now, but even though I say it is not rigged, the game definitely has been created in such a way that they will earn a hell of a lot of money through people buying extra moves and other add-ons, but I have progressed really far without paying 1 cent, and am enjoying playing it.

Just wanted to write and say people, don't do the cheat when you set your date forward by a day when playing this game. I did this and works for a few months setting it forward, but then you get to a stage where you no longer can set your phone date forward, or at least this happened with me, and it told me I had like 10000's of hours to wait for next life.

I ended up having to uninstall the game and now have just been playing it the proper way. Also because of my experience playing it in the past when cheating, I progressed through the levels a lot easier this time, even with ones I really struggled with before in the past.

Don't use the date cheat.

I don't think the game is actually all that rigged like the article states.

I must admit when I first started playing it I struggled with some of the levels, however after playing for a while I have managed to learn a better strategy and also positional play.

I then restarted the game to start from the very beginning and have found that I am now up to level 68, and I have found it relatively simple to get that far.

Just try and look for 5 in a row, and then when you get that special ball, try and use it on one of the other special things which you get when you match 4. I find almost every level can be quite easily defeated (so far), when using this strategy.

I do agree some levels do seem to be impossible to complete, but I think that's just the randomness of it all.

I sort of figured it out that it was rigged, but I do enjoy the game and you have to remember people that it is free. They don't make you buy the things, only if you choose to do so.

I play it for free, when I run out of lives I turn it off and try later on or the next day. Nothing in any way makes me pay so all good.

The developers also need to make money back for making it don't they.

I however would have preferred to just buy a game like this from the start, and one where all levels were possible, then I would have paid.

3.2 5.0 19 19 I agree.....it feels very rigged at the high levels. I think they let you play the same level for a set amount of hours trying to get you to pay and when they don't they allow you Is the game candy crush saga rigged?

56 thoughts on “Is the game candy crush saga rigged?

  1. I feel it’s rigged because I was playing a level of candy crush on my own mobile phone, could not pass the level after about 100 attempts, checked the game out on my friends phone and she was behind my level, so I carried on playing reached the level I was at and did it easily first time!!! on her phone !!! Went back to playing on mine and could not do it. The difference between her and me? She had not long paid money on the game whereas I have not paid a single thing!!! makes you wonder!!!

  2. I was watching on the news about the revenue Candy Crush Saga generates, billions :O I have paid twice just on some levels which annoyed me which I guess is what they are meant to do, but vowed not to ever pay them again. G’luck to them though, who wouldn’t want to have them.

  3. Level 199 was a complete nightmare, must have taken me over 100 games to complete, but resisted the need to pay (just) :p

  4. I cant believe my mom spends money on this crap. Tried to tell her over and over how the game is rigged but she loves playing candy crush lol She doesn’t spend too much, but all the same I think a waste.

    • My mum loves it too, I keep telling her not to spend money on it, but like she always repeats, I don’t drink, smoke or go out to bingo, so spending a few pounds on the game every now and then is causing no harm.

      I kind of agree now and as she has progressed quite far, and she doesn’t need to spend so much now, I think her skill at playing it has improved.

      As for when I played it, I stopped because I honestly felt the game only wanted me to spend to progress, and I don’t like games like that, I will stick to the Sims :)

  5. Why are you all whining, nobody is forcing you to play the damn game. Of course it’s rigged, you think they made it for your amusement!!!

    • Don’t ask us to play it then, you think we like rigged things. Nobody likes to be cheated. Fair play they made a game, but make it fair.

    • Oh so that makes it all right then Daz and legit does it?

      What happens if you play something online like at a casino or poker. Nobody is forcing us to play it, but we all want a fair chance of being able to win, but it would be perfectly acceptable to play in a casino where they rigged it so you have no chance of winning, or your cards at poker were already predetermined?

      It’s illegal, and I wonder how many customers Candy Crush Saga have whom are all under 21/18 paying money for this game and losing it. Surely that is wrong.

  6. Had enough of it now, sad because I love the format of these type of games, I do have fun playing, just not fun when you cant progress because it’s fixed :(
    Anyone know similar game I can actually buy and play like games should be played?

  7. On Level 263: Has anyone noticed the “disappearing” candies? This can occur when you match a vertical striped candy in a column that has no candy-source at the top — i.e. it is “fed” new candies by either of the two columns immediately to the left or right. The candies just … disappear! Why, you ask? Upon further inspection, it becomes clear that each time a candy disappears it is because that color of candy would have helped you progress. The “new” candy that then replaces the “missing” candy NEVER benefits your progress. This is just another blatant example of how King.com prevents you from making matches that will allow you to progress.

    But wait, there’s more…

    On Level 266: The chocolate squares could appear anywhere on the screen. That would be “random”, as it should be. But they always appear exactly where it hurts you the most.

    Seriously, people. The only time I play this game is when I’m capturing the gameplay on video to prove that this game is rigged. Stay tuned for a series of YouTube videos revealing the evidence.

    • I have never got as far as level 266, but one thing that I noticed was when I was really stuck on a level it was like no matter what way I tried it the game truly never wanted me to progress. When my younger sister got to the same level I asked her for me to try it, and it was completed easily, I think with 15 or so moves still left!!!

      Back to me playing it on my account and nope, impossible again. So came to the conclusion it’s not a game of skill, it’s not a game of luck, it is a game of whether candy crush want you to progress or not, or whether your at the certain point where they will try to aggravate you so much you end up giving in and paying up to progress.

  8. The comments that say the game is not rigged are either written as a damage control measure by the developers or the most naive people in the world. It’e painfully obvious the game is designed to frustrate one into spending a “measly dollar” or so to try to progress. The fact that you can now beat earlier levels with relatively fewer tries may mean you’ve improved, or that the program only screws you on your highest level. When you reach the levels with the “candy bombs” it will become more apparent. One can essentially look at the initial set up and determine whether or not it’s even worth it to try to solve. Once a player had gone through some set number of losses on a given level all of a sudden all of the candy lines up in rows of 5 and you progress…I mean cmon…they have to give the appearance of legitimacy to stay in business

  9. I do think this game is rigged, only because several (like 4-5) times on this one level (125), I was looking right at a square that was supposed to change, but did not follow the rules as if nothing happened. I believe if the squares behaved as they were supposed to, I would have progressed faster, maybe even beat this level by now! I have also noticed a pattern of rewards, like Pavlov’s dogs, that condition us to come back for more, to keep trying, just enough to keep you hooked. It reminds me of carnival games that you really think you can beat but in fact are designed to just make money with no real success.

    • Describing it as carnival game is good, it is sort of like that. It looks easy to do and win, but in fact un-winnable and wants to take all your money :lol:

  10. Have been stuck on level 181 for what seems ages now, beginning to think the game is rigged. Sorry game there is no way I am giving you money to pass a level lol

    • Level 181 was a bit of a pain but not impossible. Get as many special candies that fire to the left and right, and even better if you can combine them with a bomb.

      This one too me a good 30 or so attempts before completing :wink:

        • I notice same thing with levels amber. It’s like the game suddenly wants you to no longer be stuck so makes it easy after certain amount of moves.

          Me and friends notice this when we compare the difficulty of levels between each other :razz:

    • Susan I know of one cheat where you set the date forward on your mobile phone, then you get new lives added.

      The only problem with this method is that you cant ever put your phones date back without candy crush telling you that you need to wait a crazy amount of days until your next life.

      I believe though a simple way around this is to just uninstall it from your phone (but make sure you have the game already on Facebook). Once uninstalled, reinstall it on your phone and sync it with Facebook.

      Do this all at your own risk :wink:

      I cant recommend any other cheats, as I do see ones claiming to offer unlimited lives and things like this, but am unsure how legitimate they are, and they usually always want you to download or do something, very risky :wink:

      • If you have to wait a large number of hours you’re not doing it right. Set the clock forward, open the game to check that you’ve received the lives then BEFORE you use a life set the clock to the correct time. If you start playing the game the countdown clock starts and when you then change the clock you’ll get the crazy wait time. Remember, set the time back before you play the game.

  11. Buying the game sounds like a great idea. I have bought things like Tetris, lemmings, and other puzzle games in the past, so have no problem with doing that. I doubt they will ever do that though :(

    Does anyone know any other game which is like candy crushed but can be purchased as a normal game?

  12. The really troubling thing is this: I would gladly pay a reasonable fee to play this game “unrigged”. I actually believe there is some benefit to playing these kinds of brain puzzle games. Once awareness of this issue reaches a certain point, I expect King.com will release an unrigged version of the game for a reasonable fee. That’s when I’ll pay the onetime fee and reinstall the game. Until then, I’ll probably 1) try to find every way possible to get reimbursed for what little money I have already given them (because I believe what they’ve done may be illegal), 2) tell everyone I know to avoid this game, 3) give them a 1-star rating on Google Play Store (already done), and 4) contact King.com tirelessly until I am either reimbursed or given an unrigged game. Why not join me?

    • I totally agree with you Jed, and I agree also that puzzle games like these are beneficial to the brain.

      I would definitely buy candy crush saga if it was a one off payment, and then the game was played fairly.

      I doubt you’ll get any refunds for any purchases you made, as it will all be in the terms & conditions for when you made a purchase. The best thing you can do is just refuse to ever give them money again or in the future :wink:

    • Me too. I would pay for the actual game download, with none of the unfair not winnable scenarios.

      Also as I bought the game I would not be restricted to waiting for new lives. Perhaps something like if I never completed the games in one chapter with all my lives, I would need to start again from that chapter, something like that would be good.

      Thee is no denying the game is good, if it was an actual game, at the moment it’s an unfair cash cow.

  13. Obviously rigged. I been playing a level which I had trouble with on my own account for ages, played it on a friends and did it first time, was so easy. That is not a coincidence!!

  14. If you were to video screen capture your gameplay, and pay very close attention to the way the candies fall, you will come to the only possible conclusion. The game is rigged. After carefully creating super combos, one wrong match will cause the exact and ONLY possible combination of candies to fall in such a way as to destroy your super combo while giving you the least amount of benefit. On the contrary, when you are at the beginning of a level and trying to make a super combo, the candies will fall in very calculated ways in order to prevent you from making the combo. But you will have to video capture your screens and do an enormous amount of analysis in order to “prove” this. Even then, you will probably have no legal recourse to recover money spent on the game. Best to just realize the stupidity of the game – i.e. there is NO reward for playing it – and get on with your life.

    • Ralph your 100% right, anytime I made a way needed to do something, always the next ones falling would somehow ruin it for me. Your right also with no reward for playing it at all.

      It’s not like you achieve anything special like in a normal video game where you finally beat it. They will probably just keep adding on new levels also, and once they have drained enough money out of everyone, and it makes no sense to continue it on, they will simply abandon it and out comes the next silly game.

  15. Having experienced playing games for years, it’s obvious to see that candy crush saga is rigged. Any puzzle game like that which can advertise on TV is clearly rigged.

    Having played and experienced the game, the levels etc, without a shadow of doubt the games sole purpose is to extract as much money possible from players.

    I wonder if the companies need a gaming license to do this. Just like a casino you need to be over 18 (sometimes 21) to play these sort of games. Is anyone monitoring all the youngsters who are playing it, and perhaps running up debts on their mobile phones (like one person commented earlier).

    I have yet to see anything which says you must be a certain age to play this game, and seeing as you must be 13 or over to register on Facebook, this game can easily be accessed by millions in this age group.

    Also if it was just a game that a person bought and played that would be slightly different, but I would class something like this where it’s practically begging with you to pay money to help you progress quite worrying. Could this not lead to vulnerable people (underage or older) having problems in the foreseeable future.

    • Interesting about the whole gambling aspect of it, at the end of the day it is something which can make people pay due to the addiction of wanting to progress.

      I guess though that the same could be said of other things like mafia wars, farmville, and a hundred thousand other things. All these things want to make the user pay for upgrades and extras.

  16. The game is indeed clearly rigged. The levels with the candy bombs locked away (meaning you have to unlock them and then destroy them, so you are required to maneuver two sets of candies to get rid of them) prove it.

    Every attempt at a level should start off with a potential winning scenario in place, if you make a mistake somewhere along the way which prevents it, then that’s your fault. When you have those bomb levels with 5-10 moves before the level is over (thus 5 lives are gone in about 1 or 2 minutes) and you can’t even get close to maneuvering the appropriate candies into the correct position, then something is definitely not right in the game.

    Can you imagine if there was a Mario game where there was a level with a jump that is physically impossible or an Angry Birds level with a pig that simply can’t be hit (and whilst many Angry Birds levels require a rather ridiculous chain of events to get the best score, it is still always winnable)?

    That’s what Candy Crush does. Countless unwinnable scenarios thrown at you until you finally give in and pay to win, or keep going long enough in the hope of the winning scenario eventually showing up.

    • Jon it cant be denied though that levels do require skill to easily complete. For example my mother was stuck on a level for 4 weeks+, she even went on holiday and when she came back was still on that level. I was well further than her on the game, and tend to think better skill/experience with these sort of games.

      Needless to say she handed me her phone and I did that level first time to her delight.

      This has happened on numerous occassions when she has been really stuck on further levels, and I end up doing either first time around or a few lives later.

      So skill does play a part. In saying that though I do agree with you, the game has also been cleverly designed to take as much money from people as it possibly can. Not all levels seem to be winnable, and even I have been stumped on quite a few and thought to myself, ok I know they’re trying to get money from me, hell they even say it looks like your having trouble, why not buy this to help you.

      Still a great game though, love candy crush, use my lives each day on facebook and on phone, so get 10 turns in morning, 10 turns in evening, and that’s all I use it for.

  17. Just be careful with how much you spend if you are getting some help to complete levels on candy crush. I pay my daughters mobile phone bill for her as she is still in college, but I was not happy to see that she had ran up a monthly bill of £17.50 just buy playing this game and purchasing extra lives, hammers etc

    I warned her if she did this ever again her phone would get taken off her, as I cannot afford to pay for silly little games.

  18. Level 55 I seem to be having difficulties with, and not because it is hard. It’s that one where you just need to get one cherry down, but the luck of the board is not giving me anything good :( I suppose they want me to pay them now pmsl

  19. Have been stuck on level 45 now for a few days, really enjoying the game though, hopefully will do this one soon, been really close a few times now.

    • Finally got passed level 45, now need to wait 24 hours for each of those 3 bonus levels to pass before I progress. Annoying as I genuinely don’t have a facebook account I can use, and I am not making one simply for a game, oh well gives me a breakaway from the game, always a good thing. and done the first 2 stages of it, so now just 20 or hours to go :D

  20. When I first started playing it I would get frustrated at some of the levels, just chill out, have fun when you have lives, and when your all out of them turn it off and go get on with your life. 100% rigged though, you would have to be stupid to not think that the game was created to generate income, but you would have to be even stupider to give them any of your hard earned money.

  21. Have wasted enough time now on this silly game, pretty obvious the whole concept is to extract money from the player. Such a shame really as the game is good to play, I would have seriously considered purchasing it if it has cost £9.99 or so, and then you could eventually just complete it like a normal video game, I would’ve even went on to buy new future levels that were released, but not into a game where it’s random even if a level is possible to complete or not.

    They would never change it to a format where you just bought the game either, as I am sure they’re raking the money in this way. As someone pointed out earlier, they even run adverts on the TV for this, that should tell you that the game is indeed rigged.

  22. I just cant seem to do level 29, help!!!! I don’t want to pay for anything as I have no money, but the level is driving me crazy.

  23. I don’t mind the fact that I have to wait, also I don’t mind that I only get 5 lives, if you play it a lot you get sick of it especially when stuck on one level, what I do is play my lives then forget about it for the rest of the day, then that evening I have a few more shots. In regards to if the candy crush game is fixed or not, I would definitely have to say yes. The people who create this game (King I think) want to make money out of you, hell that’s why it’s advertised on TV also, they would not be doing that for no reason, and I know a lot of friends who have paid money on it, so how many other millions of fools are also :)

  24. I just finished level 65 which I found quite tricky, must have taken me about 30 attempts or so. Now I have to wait to do those 3 levels because I don’t use facebook or have a facebook account to connect up with :(

    I know it would be easy just to create a fake one, but what is the point, they should not be making facebook something you need to connect up with, not everyone uses it or likes it much, I had an account a few years ago and got extremely bored of it, I much prefer twitter for friends and following celebrities I like.

  25. I’m totally hooked on Candy Crush (I’m on level 310!) – I’m not sure exactly what people mean when they say it’s rigged. I think it is probably completely random though some levels do seem easier than others. I’m intrigued as to how they choose the number of points you need to get each star . I actually like the fact that you only have 5 lives and that you then have to wait a few hours before you can try again – it makes me go and do something else. Like others who have commented, I’m not going to pay any money – that would seem like cheating!

    • wow level 310, I am on level 49 lol, does anyone know how many levels the game actually has in total?

      Karen how long have you been playing to get that far, I think even the furthest one of my friends is around level 100, she said it starts to get hard because you get bombs that come that have timers.

      • Stacey I am nowhere near what level Karen is on, but I can confirm that your right, I think it is about level 90 or so that the bombs with timers start to happen. I can’t remember at the top of my head but I think it is either 93 or level 97 which is extremely difficult, took me a few weeks to eventually do that one.

  26. The completion you have to do if not connected to facebook is not all that bad, sure the waiting a whole one day does, but after that you then have just the normal set of lives remaining, and you try to do it everyday just like you would any other level.

    In a way it is more fun for us as we don’y skip these :D

  27. I actually like the game apart from one thing, and that is how when you play it on your mobile phone and when you get to a certain stage you need to do these stupid 3 challenges to progress unless you connect up to facebook, and the worse part is you can only do one of them before having to wait another 24 hours.

    Sorry but just because facebook is popular not everybody wants to use it. I have no interest in talking to and being friends with people from about 30 years ago in my life. All my friends now I know how to keep in contact with and do so very easily without the need for a site to reconnect me to them, so for that reason I dislike how candy crush try to make you to connect up :(

    • Noticed that as well M, totally sucks as those levels where you got to wait a day on each one are not all that easy either, seems like non facebook players are being punished, I will not give them money back then lol

  28. It definitely is rigged, but who really cares as your not forced to pay money.

    You can definitely know a game like this has been developed purely to earn as much revenue as possible when you see TV adverts for it lol

    What I feel most disgusted about it though is unsuspecting players do not know that it is pot-luck whether a level can be beat or not, and that’s even after they have spent money on upgrades to use during the level, for me this is wrong.

    EVERY level of the game should be able to be beat if the right play was done, so it basically all leads to a scam. Best to just not play, or if playing do what I did and NEVER give them any money, I got to level 97 and then I just quit the game, as I can only imagine things get even more difficult all in the hope of money, and sadly some people will be paying it :(

  29. My mum was shocked because she was on holiday and one level she could not get pass for the whole duration, she told me she was trying and trying, when she got home I had a go and did it first time lol she was like shocked I did it 1st time, but very happy she could finally move on.

    Like me she refuses to pay for any upgrades on it :grin:

  30. I gave up on the game also, level 30 I did not like because you have to get 3 apples and 3 cherries to the bottom of the board, but I was finding myself playing games and throughout only maybe 1 apple and 2 cherries were coming out, and it was not until I maybe had just a few turns left that another one came out, how are you supposed to complete the game if the objects don’t even appear, stupid…
