A booster (sometimes known as a Power-Up) is an item in Candy Crush Saga (or Candy Crush) that can be used to simplify game play. They do this in various forms. Some boosters are activated via the screen before the game starts, while others can be activated during game play.


There are various boosters in the game and all of them have different properties. Boosters come with a number of charges. Once you use the booster, one charge is consumed.

Obtaining boostersEdit

Boosters can be unlocked when you reach a certain level which will get you three free boosters of the boosters which are said to be released in that episode. The game board refers to this as "unlocking boosters."

After that, you can buy more boosters if you want to use them.

You can also get free boosters in various ways. You can be awarded boosters by completing usually 10 levels in some games by, and refill your lives. There is one booster that is only available when a Facebook or friend sends you one, namely the +3 moves booster.

As of November 27, 2013, players can obtain free Boosters every day from the Daily Booster Wheel.

As of April 22, 2014, some players can obtain free Boosters by collecting Sugar Drops on specially marked levels.

  • Shuffle booster

    The Shuffle booster, currently unavailable for unknown reasons.

    Not counting +3 moves and shuffle booster, there are a total of 12 boosters with unlocking levels.
  • Many players don't like using boosters as they believe it is a form of cheating and they aren't completing the level honestly, and some may give up on purpose.
  • Shuffle booster was unlocked on level 43, but is no longer available for unknown reasons.
  • Level 236 is the only known level that forbids the use of the lucky candy, colour bomb, and striped + wrapped boosters at the same time. The fact that it starts with all mystery candies on the board really does defeat the purpose of boosters.
  • If you click the booster and there are 0 moves left, it will waste the booster since the "Game Over" screen takes over. 
  • If you play and unlock boosters on another platform and then connect to Facebook, the boosters will be unlocked the next time you play on Facebook.
