Candy Crush Saga Level 1869

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 1869 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 1869 is classified as a hard level, so you can expect to lose a few lives before you pass it. It is also a timed level, but don't panic if you are no good at timed levels, I'm not and I did it so you can too.
You need to make either vertical stripes or colour bombs, the stripes are the easiest to make if you struggle with timed levels so go for those. The conveyor is actually helpful, although it does waste a bit of time while you wait for it to move it also gives you time to look for your next move so use the time to check for stripe and colour bomb patterns. 
If you can get part of the pattern on the conveyor eg. 2 together, then a gap and another 2 together, the conveyor may bring them to the fifth candy to make the colour bomb.
Or 2 together, a gap, then one the same colour and wait for the forth candy to make the stripe.
This sounds simple but while you are waiting for the patterns to come together you still have to keep scoring points and your patterns could be destroyed, but keep trying and eventually it will work.
The stripes will grow the popcorn, which in turn will release the extra time candies onto the board and a colour bomb can be used to collect some of the extra time candies.
Remember though, DON'T collect more time candies than you need, the timer will never go over a minute, so any that take you over that will be wasted.

Waht a horrible frustrating time level again. I wasted about 50 lives here. I had one ficus: coulour bombs, because they gain most points. After > 50 attempts (5 days), I passed it with 2 stars. Never again, waht a nightmare level...

Good luck from the Netherlands!

What a Terrible, terrible level 1869 is! Thank goodness for Cookie Jam, which is a world of a difference from CCS. I'll just spend my money over there.

My eyes and my brain just can not work together on this one....AARRGG!

RM said...

Not as bad as everyone has written here. Finished on my 5th attempt; 1 star though; that will do. Watch for color ball. Stripes are easy to make and you also get lots of 5+ seconds.

Took me a couple of days, but it wasn't too bad. It was also quite fun and seemed very doable when I was struggling to get the color sprinkles. However, a little skill here along with a sprinkle of luck. Color sprinkles are pretty easy to make if you watch the patterns. I didn't go bonkers trying to go really fast and made it on my chromebook. Not to bad for a hard level... onward crushers!

Need a lucky board......hope mine is soon

A truly stupid level. Decided to use both the possible boosters and with 2nd attempt passed it. One star only, but don't care.

Anonymous said...

I must've just gotten lucky because I passed this easily on the first try. Maybe after the last level being so ridiculously hard, they took pity on me. I got 73,000 and I'm moving on. Hang in, you will get a lucky board.

Still stuck. Can't get past 45k. I've used colour bomb boosters and combos. Just can't get close. Hate these timed levels.

Hating these timed levels. Can't even get close. Another boring wait for that lucky board :(

I don't know what is happening but playing on a laptop with Windows 10 I can't get the +5 second candies to drop even after getting cascades. Can anyone help!!

Leslie Ross said...

Unlike how it's showing in this video, I'm not getting any extra time candies besides the ones at the top. So... pretty difficult to get enough points in time.

I'm not getting ANY +5 candies either. I think there's a bug. I'm on Linux, so I don't think it's anything to do with Windows or Browser versions.

Anonymous said...

I don't get this level at all. How are you supposed to get the extra time candies at the top unless you use a color bomb. I've used up almost all my color bombs and refuse to waste them all. So frustrating.

Anonymous said...

This is one of the weird counter intuitive levels. On the iPad, this is what I did to pass, Try to hit the popcorn just once during the game. When you make colour bombs, try to leave them and don't set them off, if you are vigilant, you should be able to make a few. I stuck to normal tactics for a timed level, but you must leave some of the extra 5 sec candies at the top, when the timer goes off, on the iPad they turn into wrapped candies and will set off the popcorn and score points, plus the sprinkled candy drops and then scores good points. That strategy got me past this level. Hope that helps someone :-)

Guessing KING doesn't care how much we all despise timed levels. What a turn off!

the video has timed candies dropping below. theres nothing dropping on the level now

impossible level on pc.

Kris Huff said...

If you leave the top part alone and just make stripes and bombs to pop when the timer runs out you should pass the level . That is how i got lucky. Good luck.

As shown in the video I m not getting any extra time extender candies.. how come I will get those extra candies?

I started with a speckeled choic ball from my free boosters and was able to pass on my second try. Try to save your speckeled choc balls and not burst them. They will give you roughly 20k points each ball. Good luck!

Jon In The Rock said...

This level is a crock of shit on PC. No extra time candies ever fall, and I just played it and had 50,100 points when the time ran, had a sprinkle left. It exploded, but I got no points for it. This level has been out how long?? And it's still full of glitches.. jackasses

Anonymous said...

I've played 1868 levels and this is the worst. I don't get any extra time dropping except what's there to start. I've had up to 4 sprinkles and stripes in a game and still can't get the 60,000. Had 59,100, once. I'm done with this crap.

Anonymous said...

Haven't seen one single +5 drop during my playing, only the ones at the top. Example shows +5 dropping all over the place, is this what is meant by a lucky board?
So many timed levels recently, really does take away the enjoyment of playing CC....

Anonymous said...

Is anyone else getting +5's dropping during play or have stopped them as an added enhancement to the level to make it even more difficult?
I got as far as 50,000 today and went for time extension but it went straight to play next go!!!
See they have increased the extra time up to 10 gold bars for first extension don't know about 2nd extra time level, probably gone up from 15 to?? Why am I now getting zero gold bars when I play collecting sugar candies?

Anonymous said...

I'm not getting the 5 second add times after getting 3 cascades. I don't get it. I can't beat this due to that.

Anonymous said...

I'm dealing with the same thing :'(

Jon In The Rock said...

Back for another gripe session. Tried today. 6 sprinkles at the perfect time, no extra +5 candies, sprinkle created by the popcorn gave ZERO points. Ended up at 55,000. I'm done. King, you are a bunch of schmucks.. Incompetent is one thing, lazy is another..

Anonymous said...

Such a BS scam game! 5 sprinkle bombs and still not enough points. FU KING!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm having the same problem as I did in an earlier level, I NEVER get time bombs so I run out of time, even if I manage to get the ones at the top of the board, no others ever fall! FRUSTRATING!!!!!

Yvonne said...

Level 1869 is not the same as i have. I don't Get extra 5 seconds in the game its not poosible To do thuis game!!!!😆

Anonymous said...

How in the world can you pass this level when you do not get any additional 5 second candies? I have crazy cascades but have not gotten one, not one, 5 second candy. This is ridiculous. Please if anyone has a tip on how to pass this without additional candies please, please, please share it.

WTF !

No additional time bombs, so very difficult indeed

Anonymous said...

Never posted before but lurk often. This level has me posting! I've been on it for a few weeks and never have gotten any extra time candies. I've tried every strategy possible and nothing works. Been playing CC for a long, long time and experienced many frustrating levels but this takes the cake. I am giving it one more day-today- and if I get nowhere, gonna hang it up.

Heidi said...

Finally broke down and came to this page for hints. All I can surmise is that I have never had extra time falling randomly on my board. Now what do I do? I do hope this gets fixed.

Just wrote King to complain.

Any new tips? Can't get anywhere near the score

I don't get any +5 seconds on the bottom of the board except when the ones from the top of board come down, Have been on this level for 4 weeks and wasted candy bombs and wrapped/striped combos. Even with a bomb combined with a stripe or wrap I've never gotten more than 45000 points! PC or Android, both the same. Penny

Deena said...

I've tried every tip and am still stuck - does anyone have any more to hints? Including how to best use boosters? Any thoughts are welcome.

Have been trying to pass this level for five days. My highest score was 55,000. Hate timed levels! Posting for luck!

Bug!? I have absolutely no way to pass this level: no additional +5 candies....

Veronica Gedela said...

I am not getting +5 candies even though I am making color bombs n stripped candies

cb43 said...

Is this level broke? No extra time candies, no extra specials. Cant get more than 30000

Bad news, when you finally get thru this nasty level, another very similar is waiting for you at 1874. It took a week for 1869, 5 days for 1874. I'm now on Day 3 of 1875. Losing interest quickly on these impossible boards. Have gone to backgammon!! Good luck!

i am stuck on this level for probably a month now. came very close to passing it a few times but then ran out of time. terrible level. don't feel like playing the game anymore.

What the hell! I have been playing and playing this level and losing consistently for what seems to be forever. Then I look at Cookie's board where she wins and I see she keeps getting more and more time by having candy fall with 5 s condos on them. The only available time I get when I play this level are the ones at the top! No candy has ever fallen down with extra time on them. What the hell is this? How can I be expected to finish the level with enough points when I don't get a fair shot at it?

Come on cc. Get it together! No one likes these levels and everyone is getting pi$$ed off on boards that are impossible to win. Make cc fun again or we're all going Pokémon hunting! It may be a good time to hire new developers. It's ok if we get to the end of the game...it would be fun to start from the beginning again but do not waste our time holding us up on levels that no one can win so you can create the next sucky level!

Been on this for weeks. Not fun. May be time to give up cc.

I've been on this for weeks. Have moved over to Soda Crush. It is pretty fun and you can win the boards.

Impossible. Been on this for weeks. Time to quit CC

I don't think this level creates timed candies. There are only the ones up top which you can hit with a chocolate ball or striped once licorice is removed. Cookie said that the extra time will never go beyond one minute even after hitting the timed candy. Has anyone found that to be true? I have a hard time hitting them anyway and try not to watch the time so I could be sabotaging my game. Also, I did have the time candies drop down once and it helped score additional points. I was 60 points away from the 60000 needed when time ran out. What a disappointment. Been on this level for days and can't get any closer.

Anonymous said...

What the hell!? How does Ms Cookie get the timed candies dropping in at the bottom. As other people have said, it's not happening for us. All I get is the timed candies at the top. Bullshit bloody King have done it again. Change the friggin' game so people can't win. Thank goodnes I've found some other better games to play than this shite.

Need alittle luck. Not good on time levels at all. So Please sent a lucky board. Thank you!!

I've played this level many times, but my board does not get the 5's coming down. How can we pass with out them? Not enough time. Sure could use some 5's. A lucky board would be nice. Thank you!

KEVIN said...

Getting closer....hit the popcorn only twice then if you have time candy left it will explode when the time runs out turning the popcorn into a sprinkle candy for bonus points.

Anonymous said...

Why oh why do these levels have to be only a matter of luck to pass

Anonymous said...

Yep, King changed this level to impossible by not having any +5 candies. The board is way to small to make 200,000 points in 60 seconds. Stupid!!!

Anonymous said...

I mean 60,000 points. It may as well be 200k cause it won't happen without plus 5 candies

Anonymous said...

Twice I had scored around 44k but mostly it was mid 20s. Not once did I manage more than two hits on the popcorn. If I used a sprinkle on the colour of an extra time candy no more dropped down to replace it and there were no extra time candies on the main board.

I never use boosters on a timed level as it's usually a waste but I did this time. Both of them and passed with 82k and two stars, but it took three attempts with the boosters.

Alamogordo dan said...

Most bogus level yet. Every "help" site I have seen shows extra time candies dropping into the playing area. Hasn't happened for me in about 50 tries. Poor marketers who came up with idiot level are NOT going to frustrate me into using boosters, or spending gold bars on extra time.

Anonymous said...

I'm terrible at timed levels but I found by using the boosters before the game starts and using a couple of hammers I was able t get through this one pretty easily. The game ended when I only had 45,000 points but as the special candies started going off, I had about 65,000 at the end. Keep on trying and don't be afraid of using some of those hammers you've collected. BTW, the way I got all the hammers - I got stuck on one of the previous timed levels. I would come every day, collect my spin and when they have those special events for certain colors, I play 1055. I figured out how to win almost every time and I collected lots of boosters that way.

There is light at the end of the tunnel if you play this level on an iPhone! I was ready to give up after playing on my laptop and tablet. I decided to try my phone and passed it after a few tries! The extra +5 drop on the iPhone! Some tips I learned: try to save sprinkle balls to explode at the end, avoid sprinkle wrap or stripe combo because they change the top +5 and you need them to explode at the end to hopefully release the popcorn sprinkle ball. The popcorn needs hit with a couple stripes. After a few tries I passed it with 70,000+ points! Hope this helps! It's ridiculous the +5 don't drop on laptop or android!
