Candy Crush Saga Level 2497 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2497 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
You have 26 moves to clear the jelly and complete level; 2497 Candy Crush Saga.
The jelly is hidden under the chocolate and blockers so this has to be cleared to get to the jelly.
Vertical stripes and stripe/wrap combos will start the job of clearing and growing the popcorns.
Look for special candies with every move, wrapped candies are best for growing the popcorns, especially if you can get them next to them. If you can grow 2 adjacent popcorns into colourbombs you can switch them together to help clear the chocolate. Once the chocolate is gone it won't come back so you can forget about it once you have cleared it.
There are very few moves to spare so you can't afford to waste any at all.
A jelly fish booster may be helpful on this level.
I used a lolly hammer to finish off the jelly in the following video but it is possible without boosters.

Well I wish I could get a set-up like the video. I am finding this hard. I am lucky to get all the colour bombs exposed, let alone set them off. Finding it very hard to make wraps or even vertical stripes. I suppose it´s a case of waiting for that lucky board again!

Lucky board needed level again. Posting for luck. If only I had a bit more boosters, I would achieve it faster.

Linda Voris said...

Tough level, hard to match up stripes/wraps. Used all the boosters i had, just going to have to wait until Wednesday for it to come up on Ipad because PC is very stingy with rewards and boosters. Wonder why they have the flying saucers up by the boosters, but you can never earn them?

Many games and often still have 24 out of 24 jellies at the end. Terrible :(

Wanneer wordt dit spel aangepast? Dit is op deze manier niet te doen!

En met dat ik het gepost krijg ik een extreem mazzelbord..

Anonymous said...

and here I thought the last few levels were better.... Closest I'Ve been is 11 jellies left!!! Often, 1-2 moves available, without any chance of making stripes or wraps... I know complaining won't get me anywhere, but posting for luck might... Will wait for Lucky board.

Thought King got the message, as the last few levels had both challenge and fun in them. Then back to what has become their standard -boring as heck, and no way to win until King decides to bless you with the lucky board. Despise these levels. Use to love this game! Just about weaned myself off of it! My iPad only loads on Wednesdays, and my PC gets very few boosters. Watching time fly is more interesting - and fun!

Anonymous said...

I don't mean to brag, but I haven't used any boosters, and have gotten all the way down to 18 left!

Anonymous said...

Another tedious, boring and pointless level this is. Don't waste any boosters as it seems to be designed to take them all off you with impossible configurations. Just spend my five lives and wait for a lucky board on another day.

Anonymous said...

Poating for luck a second time. I've come close a couple of times (2-3 jellies left) AND I would have finished it IF I would have bought some moves which I won't. Waiting for the game to be available on PC in a couple of days - more boosters, magic helmet might be available, etc. Who knows .... maybe I'll get lucky then ...

Still waiting, after many many tries over the week, for that ducky board!

Came close but just not enough moves. I need a lucky board please.....

Wish there was a few more moves on this level. Posting for luck. I've been on it using my PC since last week, after finishing the last episode on mobile. I would have finish it if I would have bought some more moves but I dont want to spend money on a game I'm looosing interest in.

Without reading other comments, I just cannot believe that this isn't categorized as a 'hard' level. It's one of the hardest levels I've been on in awhile. Playing on computer doesn't let me use hammer on popcorn, so I've wasted a few hammers. I've also had extra moves, 2 chocolate bombs side by side, everything... still haven't come close. Always have at least 5 more jellies to clear. Maybe when it comes out on mobile apps tomorrow it will be easier.

cedarberry said...

I noticed this morning, King has made this level easier! I'm moving on with 2 stars...hooray, done. :)

William Bibb said...

I agree, this is one of the hardest levels ever. Mainly, because you dont realize at first, how hard and possibly "rigged" it is.

Think about it, if there is always a youtube help video showing how to beat each level, yet every video has "unbelievably lucky" amounts of candy combinations coming down, that kind of completely contradicts what actually happens in the real levels. In this one, matches never come down so there is NOTHING you can do unless you purchase boosters, or play over and over hoping for a stroke of luck.

I think the how to beat videos are made by the CCS creators, bc even having allthose boosters wouldnt control what comes down. I think they rig a lot of harder levels in a way where you are 'stuck" on them a while bc they are nearly impossible.....
***Then, out of the blue, one day you get a completely different and lucky set of candies coming down. Almost like it wouldnt come down until u were stuck on level for while.

Nasty ugly level 😣 Posting for luck

As previoulsy said on one comment I put for this level, did it after a week of tries when was finally available on mobile. First try, helmet boosters with extra colour bomb and boosters given before starting. I was very tired of playing this level and I,m very glad to move on.

Needed about 40 attempts, 2 hands, 1 hammer and 10 gold for buying 5 moves to pass this level. The next level is the same sh...

Chocolate sprinkle/wrap combo making sure there are candies of same color as wrap above the popcorn. After that some stripes and using a lollipop to make a chocolate sprinkle combo from the popcorns. Finished with 13 moves left.

As usual these days .. a stupid level : you're stucked until you've got the lucky lucky lucky board....

More and more boring this game

After 3 long days, got the lucky board--2 stars, no boosters.

Sami said...

Need a lucky board!

Anonymous said...

This one should be classified as hard. Getting no where!

Kai Q said...

All previous stages in ccs, all can be passed without using boosters, not even needing a helmet booast. Tested and proven.

Kai Q said...

At over 2000, i expect some difficulties in the stages. This one is hard, but it should be expected of.

Victoria said...

Lucky board please!!

Anonymous said...

Horrible level. Waiting for lucky board.

Emsa8 said...

Couldn't have described it better. There are so few possibilities to make combinations, its no skill, no fun, just boring and making kind of aggressive when you never have luck (or have luck in the beginning but not at the end and still no chance to finish the level)

Anonymous said...

I agrre that they keep it almost impossible to beat and then when you have tried like a hundred times they give you a board and you are like ' what just happened?' kind of thing. well i have done about 60x so far so bit of a way to play yet. good luck all!

Emsa8 said...

Play CC for 2 years and there have been always nasty levels, but here I actually do not have any clue how to solve it. The "striped spenders" spend mainly stripes in the wrong direction, CB combos or other combos never hit it all and chocolate grows fast and in the end, even after many good combinations, there are too many jellies left,.... even with fishes and or all boosters no reasonable chance.... Apart from the fact that in the beginning too few combinations are possible. Should be at least a "hard level" and with 10 moves more it would be much more fun and less desperation

Emsa8 said...

Very strange..... After around 60-80 attempts, with and without boosters, never few than 18 jellies in the end I got the lucky board, no boosters, 3 moves left. Had many CBs and could usw them often with stripes

Andrew Wheeler said...

On my Android phone, this one has just been re-classified as a "super-hard level". At least they've acknowledged that much, not that I'm any closer to completing it !

Kai Q said...

Just passed on Android, no boosters used. 2 stars. Honestly nothing special during my gameplay, just aim to make as many wrap combos. Iirc my last move was a wrap+stripe combo.

Victoria said...

Finally passed this one using 2 hand switch and 2 hammers.

Anonymous said...

Posting for luck. I have no idea how many times I have played it but no luck. Lucky board please!

Anonymous said...

After two days of playing I got the perfect board. I had already tried the sprinkle/wrap combo (several times) as somebody suggested but it didn't work for me. This time I had a wrap sitting above the popcorn but two side by side sprinkles appeared from nowhere beside it. I hesitated for a second then decided the sprinkle/sprinkle option would be better. That left me with two more adjacent sprinkles but one went off on its own. Suddenly all the chocolate was gone. More sprinkles formed without my help and the board was cleared with ten moves left.

Danielle said...

struggling......not even close!

Kat said...

Impossible level. The more I play the less I like the game anymore!

Cher said...

No were near enough moves to pass this stupid level thanks CC for making me do something else worth while with my time.

Pamela Damm said...

Ugh! Terrible level, posting for luck!

Cher said...

It is not posiable to finishing this level .
Not enough moves is one thing, but then the jelly is a double layer. Not to mention the popcorn has to be hit 3 times , by then moves are all gone . Stupid .

Anonymous said...

Help been here for ever need a lucky board as I am getting bored with this !!

Anonymous said...

Yep, posting for luck once again. Not coming close. Ugh!! Tried some boosters, but not helping much!

Danielle said...

After struggling for a good week I finally bought 5 moves and used my hammer 3 times to finish this horrible level.

King make these levels frustrating so you spend money. These levels are just boring, boring and boring. They rake the fun out of playing a game you have been loyal to!😡

This is impossible, can't even get close on my pc or phone. On my phone it's listed as a "Super Hard Level" cause the "Hard Levels" just weren't hard enough I guess! If only we all got boards like Candy!!!

This is one of those levels I dread playing. Makes me wonder why I keep playing this game.....

I have enjoyed playing candy crush for some time now, but the time has come enough is enough. It is no longer an enjoyment but just plain boring. I feel like after reaching level 2497 I am no longer interested and I am officially calling it quits.

Struggling again really hard games in this section and this one is not really fun more frustrating and no tips that can help seems the only way to pass is the lucky board

This is the worst level ever. I am posting for luck but I'm not going to play much longer. I have been playing this level for weeks. Boring, boring, boring!!!

Anonymous said...

You don't need posters and waste of time posting for luck- all you need is patience and suddenly everything falls into place! I used one swap to get 2 choc bombs next to each other & I tried to concentrate on the centre before opening up the sides because the side choc grows too quickly.

Sorry-You don't need BOOSTERS
