Candy Crush Saga Level 1817

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1817 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Get 125,000 points in 60 seconds.
First you'll need to have a quick look around the board for chances to make special candies, especially colour bombs, and collect the keys to unlock the board so you have more space to work.
Once the board is opened up just look for any chance to make special candies and combos. Cascades will give you more extra time candies so these should be the priority.

I have read many post from loyal elderly players asking for less timed levels candy crush shows how little they care about us by releasing more timed levels example 1810,1817,1822,1825,1828,1832 this shows how little they respect loyal players its like they are telling us to go to hell getting so fed up with their shit

I agree these levels depend on speed and qiucik raction time which at my age of 71 is sadly lacking. Took 20 nattempts so can be done. Don't calim all the +5 candies at once you can only have 1 minute maximum.

I fully agree with the above commentaries. At the age of 73, it is such a challenge and dread that I play the time levels. It is like blackmail on the part of King like play or pay. It is really a shame. If nothing else, King should give a player to opt out of playing the time levels by say pay 10 lives. King, you are already losing a lot of players, so think about that idea that people play for fun and you should try to accommodate us loyal players as much as you can.

Another 72 year old player! What I want to know is did any of you get through level 1810 on mobile???? I play on Android and can't get above 43,000. HELP!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Usually time levels are easier on mobile. Not this one...

Anonymous said...

I dreaded level 1817 because of my experience in level 1810 where I have to play and passed it on PC after getting nowhere on the iPad for 20 or so tries. Fortunately, I was able to complete this level on the first try without boosters. Got only 161,000 points for 1 star but at least I can move on.

I, too, am an older player, and have arthritic hands. Timed levels are very difficult for me. There seem to be more of them lately, and they all seem to be rather hard levels, making it even more difficult for we older folk.

I usually don't have much luck on the phone, but this level was easiest on the phone and I passed on the 3rd try. Got lucky.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad I read the comment here after I tried this level for the first time. One of the best pieces of advice was not setting off all the +5 candies too soon as the most time you will get is 60 seconds total (no matter how many you have.....the highest it goes to is 1 minute). After reading that helpful hint I won on the very next try.....thanks for the help and good luck to the rest of you.....I hate times levels.

Connie said...

Total agreement with everyone - especially all those with handicaps. We get so much pleasure on thinking games. This has put CCS ahead of most games that are timed. Please King, listen to your elders.

LBC said...

I was able to get 139,000 and then I bought extra time. I think getting 200,000 is virtually impossible.

Sage said...

Sage here. I'm a senior too. Timed levels can be a problem. This one was easy peasy. Can't believe how quickly I beat it. Must've been a lucky board.

AZBLUE said...

I finally got a descent board but had to go to overtime costing me 24 lives, but had to do it or quit. I agree I'm on level 1817 67 years young and a brain tumor and yes King is abusing us. We will have to try to get a lucky board get close and maybe one booster or 2 could do it. Thus does really suck

Anonymous said...

Almost senior here too! And I panic on timed levels. This was an easier one (for me, maybe a lucky board.) Sprinkles formed frequently, and I just took out a random color to let more specials form and extra time candies drop. 1st attempt, 3 stars.

Carole Charters said...

I got through level 1810 on ipone I worked through the middle. Now stuck on this one! But looks doable

Jeannette Marlow said...

I had to use my desktop computer before I passed 1810

Anonymous said...

The game on Androps vs computer is totally different! Bombs to get points. I quit trying on my phone and passed it in about 5 tries on my computer.

Anonymous said...

Level 1810 for iPad players appears to have been fixed with today's update. I passed on my third try, but scored over 100,00 points in the first two failed attempts. That was impossible before the fix. Now the bombs are much easier to eliminate and colour bombs can be made unlike before. I was able to tear through the next few levels with ease. I guess King has taken pity on me. I too am 70 and the timed levels put my blood pressure through the roof as I scramble to see moves! ((sigh))

Anonymous said...

The video gets over 30000 in a few moves...my total was 36000 at the end!!!

Ornursecandy said...

Did the same as anonymous on July11. Took out random color with sprinkle each time one formed.

Anonymous said...

The whole reason I chose to play Candy Crush was because it was a game where strategy took precedence over speed. Until recent episodes, timed levels were very very rare. Now they are cropping up all the time. Shows a lack of ability and imagination by the creators.

Anonymous said...

I passed but I'm quitting anyway. I've come to hate this game. It used to be fun. Now it's a big drag.

Anonymous said...

These timed levels are really making me hate this game also. Have some respect CC and listen to your players.

onlylisa said...

Don't panic. Look for specials. There's plenty of opportunity to get 5+ candies. Don't take them all at once. This is easier than other timed levels you've already passed.

Catgirl said...

I'm not. Elderly but still
Find these times levels a drag. I usually try to save sprinkle ball until the end. Once you're out of time they give you loads of points which can take you through. The problem with these levels is that the timer counts down during cascades, so
No
Skill required, just luck really

KING....I THINK ITS TIME TO EASE UP ON THE TIMED LEVELS. THERE HAVE BEEN TOO MANY AND SO MANY OF YOUR LOYAL PLAYERS ARE COMPLAING AND QUITTING.

Never pay a cent Bobby said...

Age 71. Some hand arthritis, but the main problem is older technical equipment. My mouse ends up popping up an unrelated screen, or iphone is way too tiny to quickly move one color. Somehow I end up getting through each hated time level within a few days. I can't complain as some of us do not support King financially. Why should King go out of their way if we play for free?

Anonymous said...

My problem is on 1817 it does not give me cascades of extra time like on see on you tube, it even say on here that it gives extra time not for me!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I don't get extra time cascades either.

Anonymous said...

No cascades of extra time here either,

auntiejet53 said...

No cascades with extra time candies for me either so not getting anywhere near scoe even with sprnkles matched with wraps

Sue said...

So how do we get this fixed with no extra time cascades? Apparently there has been a bug imposed on this level at this time.

Unknown said...

I also do not get extra times. I've used ALL my saved boosters, bought 15 extra seconds once and still cannot beat. Got to 109,000 (mine says you need 125,000), tried to buy the extra time but it froze so I had to kill the app. Of course, the purchase of gold bars went through but I couldn't get to 109,000 even. So I used the 15 extra seconds when I got to 99,000 and it wasn't enough. I've tried on iPad, android phone, and laptop. None of them give extra time bombs.

Unknown said...

I'm the one who posted "I also do not get...". Well, I remembered that I also had the APP on my Windows 10 computer. It's different than the regular Facebook version. That version must not have been updated because it had the extra time bombs!!! So 1/4 of my versions had the extra time bombs. With those, I got 202,460 on my third try with no boosters. Wish I could get my money, time, and boosters back from the bug version tries. I probably tried this level 40-50 times!

Lynn in Texas said...

No time drops! What is the problem?

Wpalatka said...

Still no time drops and so frustrating not to be able to move until the track completes its SLOW rotation. Horrible level.

Wpalatka said...

OK King, listen up:

"The Department is currently developing regulations specifically addressing the accessibility of goods and services offered via the web by entities covered by the ADA. The fact that the regulatory process is not yet complete in no way indicates that web services are not already covered by title III."
— Statement of Interest of the United States Department of Justice in NAD v. Netflix (page 10)

This means YOU and your timed levels. You make money off of us which gives us rights.

Anonymous said...

There are no timed candies dropping on this level???? How in God's name are you supposed to pass if they aren't dropping? Please fix this bug.

richard e G said...

I used to cringe at the thought of doing timed levels. I always barely made one star. But one day, I said, what the hell I am doing wrong? What I was doing wrong was worrying about the time, which always screwed my thinking up When I STOPPED worrying about it, and concentrated on making combos only, etc., I began to do really good :) I redid previous levels and 3 starred all of them. It works people, and it will work for you, I guarantee it!

Microwimp said...

So I just watched the video on this site and yes there are 5 second time drops. On my ipad and my PC, there are no time drop candies. I looked to see if CC needed to be updated and all was up to date. So maybe there is a bug. I have been playing other games because this one looks like it's the end of the road. I will keep trying with my 5 lives, but that's it. Maybe I will have time to do other things instead of CC.

Anonymous said...

I've been on this level for days and not even coming close to getting through. I'm not getting any cascading extra candies either. I'm getting very frustrated.

auntiejet53 said...

posting again as still no extra time candies with cascades and you cannot do this level without them. Are you going to fix this King ? If not players are not going to be able to progress and spend money!

Anonymous said...

For some reason, no matter how many cascades I produce I never get any more extra time candies!!?. Is there a trick to this? Please HELP ME

Anonymous said...

I agree microwimp...I also have had enough

Microwimp said...

I found the secret to this board based on a comment above which I kept in mind while playing. If you get a color bomb hit any color next to it. Every time you get a color bomb do that. Also it's probably a good idea to try and unlock the plus time candies and like others have said, don't use them all at once. I think I got 6 color bombs in a row because when you wipe out one color there are more chances for color bombs. Finally!

Anonymous said...

No matter how many cascade I do, I cannot get time candies. Help

Anonymous said...

Is there any point playing 1817 with no time drops ? I'm thinking they will fix eventually, but in the meantime why even bother.

I have noticed as thousands of other players have the levels are aimed at making money, King your losing players because your making it silly now
Its a game.... Supposed to be fun

Have just watched your video for this level and I'm confused. Having been frustrated with this timed level for days now I thought I'd try to get some pointers from you but now I'm just bloody angry! I'm playing on iPad and the game doesn't give any extra time candies no matter how many cascades I make. It seems impossible to achieve the required amount to pass this level when cc have taken away any opportunity for extra time apart from the candies that are on the board at the start of the game! Why are there different versions of the same games? Why aren't the levels the same regardless of which platform you use to play? I hate timed levels to begin with but this is just ridiculous, where's the fun in it?

Anonymous said...

As an older player, I also have problems with timed levels. I suggest that instead of complaining here, we send the complaints to King. I've had to complain several times when they have cheated me out of boosters or I had a locked screen after winning. They have always responded immediately and settled it by the next day to my satisfaction. This site is for hints and doesn't go to King, the player manufacturer that we all have a love/hate relationship with. Let's all complain to King. Just google King complaints and you'll find the link.

auntiejet53 said...

I have posted twice before on this level re no extra time candies forming on my laptop, no matter how many colour bombs or cascades you get. I had started to play just one or 2 games a day just to check if this had been fixed as without the extra time candies and low scores for cascades and special candies you cannot complete this level. My laptop was getting fixed for 2 days so I decided to play on my Samsung Galaxy and I passed on the 2nd try! On the galaxy the cascades just kept coming, no extra time candies though but the cascades had high points and got me through. If you are playing on a laptop try and play on a phone or pad as the game is different and easier on them.

Anonymous said...

After what seems like weeks of playing this level, without the obvious bug of no cascading candies, I have finally passed it. At the time of posting this i still wasn't receiving the cascading candy but the trick to beating this is to make as many sprinkle balls as possible and then just hit any coloured candy. A word of warning though, don't use all the static timed candies at once. Good luck.

Anonymous said...

There are no cascading candies. I don't think it's a glitch. I think that's how it's supposed to be. After numerous tries I cleared this level by making chocolate sprinkle balls and matching them with a single color. Don't match them with special candies as that takes too much time. Good luck

Anonymous said...

this level is so about them making money, its impossible to do without extra time, which you never get after you use the ones on the board no new ones are forth coming.Greed is a terrible thing.King you stink!

Jamie said...

I get NO extra time candies dropping down. Why?

Anonymous said...

After several days of trying I finally passed with one star. After those fruitless attempts I decided to start using a sprinkle ball booster and switched it with whatever color had the most on the board. This tended to produce more sprinkles. I didn't save any sprinkles for the end, I just switched them as soon as they appeared. It took 4 tries using this tactic but it eventually paid off. And I played it on my iPad

Anonymous said...

After learning from someone who passed this that there are several timed levels ahead, I think I'm done with CC. I've come no where close to passing this level and am bored with trying.

Ggs said...

I have tried to pass this level on iPad and desktop, no luck so far. I've used many sprinkles... I hope this level gets fixed.

Unknown said...

How is it that videos on YouTube for this level shows people winning with cascades of extra bloody time!!! I have tried so many times and still I see NO cascades of EXTRA TIME!!!! Grrrrrrrr!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

This is the first time I've posted here in months. I like several recent posters above, have no extra time candies falling, no matter what I do. I don't think I can pass this, just ridiculous to make it so difficult. I'm just about done, playing this for almost 4 years now, takes the fun out of it when you see no way to pass. Screw you candy crush developers.

No extra time candies - Aargh!

CC should repair this level, as no extra-time candies are dropping, as shown in The video. Tried numerous Times, but Without extra Time it's allmost impossible to pass

Anonymous said...

I have never committed before, but I have been on this level and used a lot of my sprinkle candy and never get extra time to fall. Is there anything I can do. I'm never going to pass this đŸ˜©

I can't even get past 80000. Just waiting for that lucky board I guess. No skill required for this one.

Nyleak Ny said...

I've been playing for weeks (rotating from my androud, kindle & desktop)... clearly they're not going to fix the glitch. After several years I'm officially saying goodbye to CC. Good luck everyone!

Zorbin said...

Apparently, the glitch of no timed candy drops, still exist. I ran across this problem in 1753. I, finally, beat it aftet playing a month, with no drops. I ended up getting extra time from building up enough gold, on regular candy drops. I had gotten to 52+k, with buying the extra time I ended up with 60,054. Thought by now, and with the recent update the time glitch would be fixed. I just played 1817 and never got extra time. This saddens me, greatly. I have emailed King, bunches of time, but always get the "standard" reply. I hate to think about deleting the game, since I have been playing from day 1.

No timed candies in cascades either...
Like most guess I'm posting for luck & hoping for that lucky board!

Anonymous said...

On my second attempt at this level, I started with a candy ball booster and immediately took out enough keys to open up the time candies. Using them, as well as lots of additional time candies that appeared, I was able to finish with three stars. Looking at all of the other candies, though, maybe I just got my lucky board early this time. Onward!

Anonymous said...

"comments" not "candies". It's late...

Anonymous said...

Still no extra time candies falling. Once the bottom ones are unlocked and used that it it. Cascades waste so much time that the extra time candies would be useful. My scores so far range from only 20k to 112k. The way to win seems to be matching sprinkles with any candy.

Anonymous said...

I was down to 7 seconds before I managed to unlock the extra time candies but I had a sprinkle and used it one one of the colours. Several sprinkles later I scraped through with 127k with just a few seconds to go.

These levels aren't worth the time anymore they don't give you anymore imed levels no way to make what you need

Ridiculously hard on iPad, tried on iPhone and passed first try, much easier as lots of extra time candies drop

Julie Rose said...

If you aren't getting the extra time candies make sure you've installed the latest update. I just did and passed it without a problem. Plenty of extra time candies and finished with over 156,000 points.

Helen said...

I usually struggle with timed levels, I passed this 2nd try with score of 780600 the game seemed to go on for ever with loads of extra time candies and loads of combos.

Anonymous said...

My technique for these timed levels is to ignore making combos, sparkles etc. I just concentrate on getting rid of two colours. It is easier to spot 3 of a colour than a combo possibility. I kept matching orange and purple. This means more and more of the board is blues and greens, so the sprinkles form automatically. Match with anything, and then go for the two colour elimination again. I got most of the timed levels with this method. Hope it helps.
