Candy Crush Saga Level 740

Tips for level 740 Candy Crush Saga
You need all 5 keys to unlock the locked cells and the only way to get them is with special candies and combos.
Stripe/wrap combos are good but make sure there are keys where they will go before you set them off and waste them.
Colour bombs are also very good, even better if you can switch them with a stripe to clear cream and jelly as well as collecting the keys.
While you'r working on getting keys don't forget about the cream and jelly at the bottom of the board as this has to be cleared too.
Once the locks are open more combos will clear the jelly on the right.

I am sick to death of playing this level. It is tough to beat a game designed to make me lose constantly unless I spend $!!! I have used all my booster wheel fish (6) & it was no help whatsoever. Don't waste 'em! I am determined to beat this level now w/out buying anything!!! GRR!!!

Anonymous said...

Phooey. This level is a stinky booger snot! A real poopyhead of an episode!! Do not want!!! I am going to have nothing more to do with it...

at least until my friends start sending me extra moves and I've again garnered a sizable quantity of daily spin winnings.

[sigh]

Finally get through with few try...
1. Colour bomb with strip will be helpful, try to make it 2 ~ 3 combination for this level otherwise will run out of moves
2. Try to clear bottom harder cream to get some space to make combos...not to worry so much on the keys first, once u get more space, combo will be an easy task to make
3. Power of 3 candy wont help, just make lot of strip+wrap candy; strip+colour bomb.
have fun!

This is not a fun episode at all, I think this has been the most irritating episode I played in CC sofar.

This is again a matter of a lucky board. Stripe with colour bomb will be helpful. I did not use any boosters, but I guess I was lucky.
The advice on the bog is the correct advice, I have nothing to ad.

Waiting for the next episode!

****By the way, this can be a helpful tip:
I play through FB and on my phone. I start them up at the same time and I start the daily wheel at the same time on the 2 devices, than I wait for the result and claim them at the same time: this way you have 2 prices from the daily wheel;-)

Good luck from the Netherlands!

Boring end to a super-boring episode. Just going on once a day to claim freebie and go through the moves with no expectation of success. Where has the fun gone??

Anonymous said...

Finally passed this level (combos, combos, combos) and thought I'd stop playing for a while, but the next day I saw that those insidious fiends had added Marmalade Meadow (Levels 741 - 755). Aieieie!

Thanks, Anonymous from the Netherlands for your helpful comment.

I will have to agree with others (not just on this level) that this episode has had so many hard levels that it's taken the fun out of playing this game. Many of them require multiple boosters to win, as hard as so many other levels have been.. this is by far the hardest to complete. Even the sample video had at 3 speckled and a stripe/wrapped (or 2) to complete. Hard to get any of those with all the colors on the board.

Mona Silva said...

No fun levels in this episode. To pass 740 I had to use up all my saved extras from daily free spin - 3 extra moves, 1 hammer, and 5 hand switches. But I finally moved passed this dreadful level. Hope the next ones are more fun :(

I am on level 740 and i have NEVER spent one cent on any of the games. 740 is a challenge but i will win it eventually.

What a boring, stupid, frustrating level. I absolutely hate the 700s. So many are just like this. It's all about a lucky board.

Anonymous said...

This is harder than 735 and 737 as this has taken me more tries than both of those levels did combines. Definitely "insanely hard". This one reminds me a lot of 181 having to get multiple hits on the side columns to get the jellies but is much harder because of the 6 colors keys and licorice.

This whole episode has been so tiresome, its been nothing but grind it out board after board, absolutely no fun at all. This is the last level to complete in this level and I'm at the stage I just don't want to play any more, it so boring now. I have only played level 740 twice, but I actually cannot be asked to even finish the level. I'm so disillusioned with the whole game. Time to stop playing, for me the candy crush bubble has burst and I get no enjoyment from playing ...

Anonymous said...

played 1 game and then read this blog....I then used 1 choc. ball - fish and strip/wrap combo that I had saved from free daily spin wheel.....it worked ....used choc ball and strip, another came and board just flowed right and I got it. Hope this helps.

Rain Thompson said...

Chocolate balls? Really? I can barely get a couple stripes much less wrapped. I'm frustrated and tired of this poppy cock!!

Nuri148 said...

Agree with my fellow commenters: this episodes sucks big time. :(

Anonymous said...

Of course it's another stupid level but keep at it.....it is beatable. I finally beat it after a few days. If you have gotten this far you know that every level is beatable.....just keep at it and you will get a lucky board.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the advice on the daily boosters. I am going to try this.

Rain Thompson said...

UGH!! 125 lives I have gone through on my ipad. Switched to the PC and went through those lives, now I'm sitting here waiting for more lives, boosters and I am exhausted, frustrated and ready to throw this entire pc out of the window.

Anonymous said...

Finished 740 never have spent a cent on this game. However it is no fun anymore must have multiple boosters to win these levels. If you delete the game then reinstall without connecting to face book. Boogy through first 34 levels to recollect all your boosters than reconnect to Facebook.

Rain Thompson said...

Anonymous - deleting the game scares me. I'm afraid I'd lose all that I have worked so hard through. Boogying through the first 34 levels to recollect all my boosters then reconnecting through facebook makes me feel ill. I've gotten down to one and if only I had a hammer on my ipad, I would have finally finished it. I don't understand why I can't use my boosters via my ipad, but boy does this level is a bear!!! UGH

Ladilove said...

Focus on making horizontal stripes to get the keys. Make that priority while clearing jelly at the bottom. Then get the jelly on the right with stripes or combos. Had to use lollipop hammer for one jelly with one move left. Not an easy one but doable with patience. Good luck!

What a massive disappointment got this far to waste my energy on a level which requires no skill just the right board forget it uninstall on its way sorry I spent so long playing a crap game and wasting my lifej

Anonymous said...

Nasty level but managed to pass it after about 4 days. Playing on the iPad and came closing to passing it a few times. Today I had one jelly left and no possible combinations to wipe it out with 2 moves left so I smashed it with the hammer I got from the free spin this morning. A freebie well used!

Joep van Mourik said...

Got lucky. 3 blue keys and 2 purple. Had 1 sprinkled bomb as daily booster and got just the 3 blue. 2 moves later got another sprinkled bomb and got the 2 purple. (no stripes, just plain candies)Then I had 47 moves to remove the jelly and did it with 5 moves left. Happy to be out of here.

Rain Thompson said...

Me again. I keep getting the speckled balls at the end, what is the deal, man I need a lucky board and really tired of complaining on here. I really aint got no mo time fo this!

Anonymous said...

My game only went through 740. No new levels posted yet. Is there something I need to do to get to the next levels. I guess I got lucky on 740, cleared it on my second try but had to use a hammer.

Rain Thompson said...

I wish I could get a flipping hammer. I keep getting useless fishes. UGH

Barb Whitlock said...

Crazy level! Just keep getting vertical candies, horizontals never fall where I need 'em - have cleared the keys several times, but can never get combos to clear that last row of 5 jellies. Driving me to drink! I'm all out of boosters.

Rain Thompson said...

I just want to cry. But, I know I'll get that lucky board, but this is the worst by far.

Anonymous said...

Candy crush has blocked me on my android tablet at level 740. It says play the old games. Seems strange and is going on since two weeks. Why candy people release the next level please.

Rain Thompson said...

UGH - Me again. Still not a lucky board. I get the keys, but can't get the one's to the right. I even got a sprinkled ball and thought, "This is it." I tried to save it for a striped to match it to and guess what - it forced me to use it on a color I didn't even need. blech. I'm over this game. Weeks have been spent and so has my boosters. I refuse to spend a dime on by passing this, so now what? Give up? NEVER! UGH

Anonymous said...

Just got levels 741-755 a week after I finished 740. My daughter has through level 770 and she's only at 700. No figuring it out. Rain- if you download soda crush from candy crush, it will give you gold bars with which you can purchase hammers or extra moves, etc

Anonymous said...

Hard but fun level that requires thought, took about 25 goes but came close many times. Onwards and upwards regards AJ

Rain Thompson said...

Thank you Anon. I'm doing that right now. Then maybe, just maybe I can finish this level.

Rain Thompson said...

How many levels on candy crush soda do I have to complete until I am able to gain some gold bars???

Anonymous said...

As soon as I clicked on new game that shows on your candy crush it gave me 50 gold bars after downloading

Anonymous said...

really? I just downloaded soda from candy crush and it gave me nothing!! What's the trick?

Anonymous said...

740 was hard, but I just waited till I could save up enough lollipops to clear the candies on the right. Was lucky today and needed only three lollipops to finished the level. Now on to 741 ;)

Anonymous said...

I passed this level but now that I updated it won't allow my 2 connect with facebook, help me pkease

Rain Thompson said...

I downloaded soda, played to level 10 and it gave me nothing. I'm ready to quit this game. I've been at it for over a month and said I would never give up, but this time, I'm giving it another day and then I'm done. Not worth the frustration!!!! UGH and DOUBLE UGH!!

Anonymous said...

When I downloaded Soda I got the 50 gold bars and 4 or 5 lollipop hammers immediately. They cannot be transferred or used for Candy Crush.

Rain Thompson said...

I'm SO bored with it now, I rarely play.

Rain Thompson said...

OMG OMG OMG I JUST PASSED IT!!! THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

Bill. said...

Need a lot of luck and then a free hammer to remove the last jelly. Very tedious.

mike said...

I have spent money on this game on several occasions. All it does is make the game harder because they know you will spend money. If I had it to do over, I would never spend a penny! This level is ridiculous. Going to try one more set of lives, If I don't get a good board, I'm deleting this app. Scr**w this!

Anonymous said...

JanC here. Got it! Two stars, no boosters, no Facebook, playing on an android tablet. Yesterday I got down to one jelly three times but had used my only hammer saved from the daily spin on that recent ghastly boring level. I won a hammer this morning but didn't need it. I did not find this an unpleasant level (unlike that boring level) just difficult. Aren't nearly all levels at the end of episodes? Here are my tips: If I didn't have two keys when I had 30 moves remaining, I quit and started over. Getting those right hand jellies required at least 20 moves along with clearing bottom, so if I wasn't well along at that point, I'd start over too. Not playing out unlucky boards helped my frustration level. I don't think using other boosters would have helped, so I saved mine for another day. Take breaks!

A game is supposed to be fun. When it becomes too hard, it loses the fun factor, people will just give up n stop playing.

Anonymous said...

This game isn't fun anymore. These levels are way too hard. If you don't spend a bunch of money, It really isn't possible.

Jo said...

I have spent no money at any point in Candy Crush. I've just done level 740 after a week of trying. All the way through I've found some boards are hopeless then you get any easy board.

For the difficult levels you just have to wait till an easy board appears! In this case I got three chocolate bombs which I matched with a stripe, a wrapped/stripe combo was made and I used two hammers (saved from daily spins) to clear the last two jellies.

Jennifer said...

I agree with the others - the only time I actually came close to winning this level was when I focused on opening the bottom up. I would stick to the bottom, unless I was able to make a striped, wrapped, etc., then I would make it, and go back to the bottom.

I've been stuck on this level for about two weeks. I finally got a "lucky" board. I focused on the bottom and got a chocolate with a striped, which cleared a lot up. The board gave me 2 or 3 striped / wrapped combos, and I had to use two free hammers to get the final jelly.

Anonymous said...

For those playing on an android :
Make sure your current board that you are stuck on is saved through Facebook. On your android delete candy crush data, do not uninstall. Log back into candy crush but DO NOT connect to facebook yet. Play 1 through 19 and then log into facebook. You will have full boosters and hammers. PS unchecked the booster so ya don't use it while playing. Also at a certain level they will give you 50 gold bars which can only be used to continue playing sometimes they will offer three more hammers which should give you a total of six. Hope this helps with the frustration of this game. Just passed 740!

cherylcandycrush here.

A really, really hard level but fun in a hellish sort of way. At least no chocolate rampaging.

But so hard I was afraid I would never get through as I only have one lollipop hammer left.

But here is how I did it-sheer brilliance LOL

First I made a couple of moves to start clearing the bottom jelly. Then I was able to make a colour ball on about move 4. I waited and almost immediately along came a chance to make a stripe which landed next to it.

In the explosion that followed, I got another colour ball plus a stripe and wrap that landed on top of each other and in the right spot to clear all 3 of the remaining keys.

Of course, using a stripe/wrap caused a lot of new candies to fall, leaving a colour ball and stripe next to each other. I combined them, and in the cascade that followed, I got another colour ball and stripe land next to each other. I could hardly believe my eyes as there was also a stripe/wrap combo there for me too. I guess that was in case I hadn't noticed the colour ball/stripe combo.

Obviously the god of CC wants me to move on.
I finished with 3 stars and 12 moves to spare.

So all you need is a few good cascades and you too will be able to play as brilliantly as I did. LOL

Why can I no longer play the quests after level 740? They were there yesterday but now it is forcing me to connect to Facebook or purchase!

I just got the same thing on my android and it asked me to ask three friends for help. I guess they will make me bring in more people if they can't get me to spend money. anyone else experience this?

Anonymous said...

After weeks of trying I beat it this morning. No boosters and 3 stars. As with all the games this level it's a matter of getting the right board and then it just happens. very boring and tedious. Jane

Anonymous said...

Finally did it, just needed a free lollipop hammer to bash the top jelly. It was a boring level though. I'm trying to stop myself getting the next set of levels but I bet I don't last long!

Anonymous said...

Finally-after 2 weeks. I used 3 lollipop hammers and got the hell out of dodge. What a dreadful level. As bad as Odus 376, which I've been on for 3 months and only play when I can't play saga.

So sorry we have been mistreated by KING!

Happy New Year!

Has anyone ever won the Jackpot of the free spin of the day? Just thought Candy Crush might not feel like Scrooge at this time of the year. Hint hint. I am on Level 740 and have NEVER won the Jackpot although every other spin has landed me another candy option. Much like the casino slots, rigged never to win a Jackpot.

Anonymous said...

Agree with all of u. SO BLUDY boring these last levels and stupid. I think I know what my New Year Resolution should be. Quit wasting time here. Thanks Candy Crush programmers for turning a fun game into one that most of us have come to dislike.

Kfmconsulting said...

Tough, tough level. Finally got a halfway lucky board, cleared the keys, got two sprinkle bombs but but then used three lollipops for the last three jellies. Did it on my iPad and got three stars. Hope the next episode is not so contrary. BTW....I have never hit the jackpot on the daily free spin. Good luck!

Anonymous said...

I have finally beat level 740 and I did it with FISH. Every fish you activate becomes 3 and if you can connect them with a striped candy you have 3 lethal weapons. I could not believe my eyes when the last 3 striped fish took out the column of jelly on the right. What a crappy, boring level that is.

Anonymous said...

This level is really ridiculous. I used 6 color bombs, 3 wrap/strips, 6 fishes and still couldn't get passed. Finally after 4 days of intense playing I cleared. Really insane level.

Dexter Frantz said...

I just played my first game on this level. I don't agree that it's boring and takes no skill. Yeah, it requires combos, but doesn't it take skill to make and use them? And there are no freakin' bombs! Chocolate! Licorise! Etc, etc.
"Just" keys. I've passed the last 739 games like you have,
and will get thru this 1 too. 🔒🔑

Dexter Frantz said...

I just won this level by doing the following. I used a speckled ball, from the daily wheel, and kept looking for a game where I could use it with s stripe (I play on an iPad and can back out of a game without using up a live).
That opened 3 locks. I got another speckled ball and opened the last lock. I had a great board and got down to one jelly on the right hand board. I had a lot of moves left but then the board started to suck. So I cheated some more and used a hammer, also from the daily wheel, to take out the last jelly.
I hate to think what is waiting in #741. Good luck!

Wpalatka said...

Soooo tired of this level. I agree it takes some skill but there is no way to win without a lucky board and I play on a PC and cannot back out of games. So I guess I am stuck waiting.

Wpalatka said...

PLEASE Candy Crush Gods - - Let me off this level!

Anonymous said...

Finally passed this level after roughly 50 lives, but I did not use any boosters. This level is all about luck; you just have to wait for a good board. Praying that the next episode is not as horrible as this one was...

Anonymous said...

This is another level that is soooo boring it sucks and to be honest this game is no fun anymore. EVERY level now is about waiting for a lucky board. You may as well be at the Casino and be hoping for a lucky spin on the wheel.
I refuse to pay for anymore extra bonus hammers etc as King has had enough money from me. I would sooner quit instead! judging by the comments above, many folks are having the same issues and this is why people are leaving this game.

Anonymous said...

I finally got down to 2 jellies and used two lollipop hammers - anything to leave this level!!

Hp.fruity said...

I deleted candy crush, reinstalled it played the 1st 34 levels to gain 3 sprinkles 3 wheels 3 fish 3 lollipops 3 hand swap 3 wrap/stripe + 50 gold connected to Facebook lost the 50 gold but kept all other boosters. Beat this with 1 coconut wheel additional to ones on board.

Anonymous said...

Yes! Delete the game, reinstall it but do not connect to Facebook until you finish the first 34 levels. After you finish them, reconnect to Facebook to have all of your boosters refilled for free. It helps immensely with this level if you are struggling. Good luck; it is doable!

Anonymous said...

Stupid!!!!!!!! Not buying boosters!!!! Won't pass with them anyway!!!!

Anonymous said...

Sometimes it's just enough to see that it can be done to finish a level. I have tried for over 5 days to complete this horrible level.Finally I figured I would check google, which lead me to this page.

This advice was helpful:Try to clear bottom harder cream to get some space to make combos...not to worry so much on the keys first, once u get more space, combo will be an easy task to make

I've been trying to clear the keys first ending up with 1 left several times. Finally completed on 4th life.

Raylo said...

I've really enjoyed Candy Crush. That should be obvious since I've come this far. But, this is maybe my last hurrah. I've been on this level so long, I don't even look forward to playing anymore. Trivia Crack got boring, so I quit. If it's not fun, I'm not wasting my time with it, and this level IS NOT FUN!

Raylo said...

This is so incredibly weird! I just now posted about this level and had been stuck FOREVER!!! Right after I said I was done with CC, I thought I would use up my lives and be done. Two or three lives later, I got three chocolate balls, two or three combos, and a Sugar Crush before I even realized I had done it! Pure luck, but I'm going on at least for a little while! Good luck.

Anonymous said...

A moderately difficult level, but I still enjoyed it. At least there were no time bombs or spawning chocolate. Got lucky and was able to clear all of the keys with a wrapped-Striped combo. Had 41 moves left to clear the remaining jellies, and did so with only two moves left. Now to wait 72 hours for the Tooth Fairy, a self-imposed break from the game.

June said...

One more mind numbing level. So incredibly slow and boring. Same old thing; wait for a decent board, or better yet say goodbye.

Chad Duerksen said...

Yet another level that requires buying a to. Of boosters, since hardly any matches ever fall with all the colors on the board. I guess after 700 levels they ran out of stuff to do, but the insistence on having to buy moves or boosters on almost every level now is pandering and quite dishonest.

Chad Duerksen said...

It is humorous how much the game is rigged though. Got all the keys with 31 moves left, then not even one stripe fell after that for 31 moves. It's clearly pre-determined if you win or not, and set up various ways on how much it will give you.

Anonymous said...

Another sucky level. Argh. So frustrating.

Anonymous said...

I finally got it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Right after I posted about what a sucky level it was! I seriously thought I would never get past this level. Luckily I had one hammer to use which took out my last jelly. The hammers have saved me in the 700s. I seriously hope the next level is more fun than this one was.

Anonymous said...

It took ten days but I finally beat this humdrum level, using no boosters and getting three stars. It takes a lot of combos and/or chocolate bombs to do it, but it is solvable. I play on my Android phone and backed out of games where the keys had more than three colors. Good luck !!! JayJay

I got a few extra free boosters including 1 lollipop hammer and 3 switches for logging in and playing through Facebook on the laptop for the first time ever. Normally I play only on the Android app. My second game playing through Facebook on the laptop, I got a lucky board and was able to use 2 switches to make color bombs and passed!! I had been stuck for many days on 740 and played countless times but could not win hammers and switches on daily wheel which would have been most helpful when I got down to 1 jelly a few times. So maybe try FB if you normally don't ��

There have been a lot of hard levels to get this far, but none have been this boring. I'm hardly playing now - just not enjoying it any more. Looking at the comments, there's not even any strategy, just pure lucky board. This one might finish me playing CC ��

First game after posting the comment above, I finally cracked it - with the help of four lollipops........

I too am sick to death from playing this level....and, now this game, altogether. Just as I am ready to make a candy bomb. one of the candies that would HAVE formed the fifth candy falls wayside making it a four candy involvement. I am no longer having fun with playing and I guess that is why there are so many other games to choose from. Throughout this one month, level 740 has allowed me to get to ONLY ONE MOVE LEFT and bamm...done... start over OR PURCHASE. Pulling out now. NOT NICE anymore.
