Bejeweled Blitz by is Popcap’s most recent twist on the all-time classic puzzle game. Along the way to total jewel domination, you have the opportunity to use boosts, bonuses, and multipliers. If you aren’t smart about it, you can deplete your coin bank, and potentially your actual wallet, quicker than you earned it. I’ve been playing Blitz for years and here are the tips, hints, and cheats I’ve found to be most useful in helping fly by your friends in the leaderboards in no time!

Bejeweled Blitz: Top 9 tips, hints, and cheats to get your highest scores ever!

  1. Four gem in a row combos – save ’em up!

As most Bejeweled Blitz users already know, creating a chain of 4 gems will give you a special gem that detonates the gems around it. Instead of detonating these right away, I always save them for as long as I possibly can so I have a ton of them left on the board. Try to avoid detonating them at all costs and work on increasing your overall multiplier before even thinking about detonating them. You’ll be glad you did when you’ve got a cascading burst of gems detonating at 8x your original score!

  1. Multipliers and speed bonuses are super key to a super high score

In Bejeweled Blitz you technically have two bonuses to help you rack up a super high score. Here’s an explanation of both:

The speed bonus will go by how fast you are at swiping gems. If you slow down, you’ll lose it. Pay attention to the added speed bonus. As you swipe gems you’ll see it go up until it maxes out at +1000. This means that for every move you make, 1,000 points is getting added to your score. If you maintain that and keep swiping gems quickly, eventually the +1000 will go from yellow text to red and you’ll hear a sizzling noise. Once the font is completely red, you’ll get a fire bonus where every gem you swap explodes the ones around it. You’ll want to swipe as fast as you can to get this bonus as many times in one round as you can.

The second kind of bonus is your actual multiplier. As gems fall, you will see some of them have a x2 or x3 in them. These multipliers go in consecutive order all the way up to x8. Always swipe to snag multipliers whenever you can. The earlier you get a higher multiplier in the game, the faster your score starts to climb. I always keep an eye out for multipliers on the board and go after them as soon as I see a move that will either match three to obtain it or where I can explode it.

Using speed bonuses and multipliers in conjunction with each other is really the key to obtaining an extremely high score. A +1000 speed bonus and an 8x multiplier can rack up some serious points in not a ton of time.

  1. Choose your boosts carefully

Boosts are a tricky thing and if you’re going to spend your heard earned (or paid for) coin on them, make sure you’re picking the right ones. While everyone’s preferences are different, I’ve found the following three boosts to be the most effective almost 100% of the time.

I always choose these three boosts for important reasons. Adding 5 seconds to your game play time may not seem like a ton but when you have a 8x multiplier, you can rack up a heck of a lot of points in those extra 5 seconds. Ultimately, it can make a huge different in leaderboard rankings.

The scrambler is a great one to have on hand for when you don’t see anything on the board immediately. As previously discussed, you’ll only get fire bonuses in game and keep the +1000 bonus if you’re fast. You’ll lose it and your main added bonuses will start back at zero if you aren’t quick enough. The scrambler gives you two saves per round and I use them if I don’t see my next move on the board while making the previous one. Getting fire bonuses with high bonuses equals lots of extra points!

Bonus multipliers mean that you start the game with a multiplier on the board already. Sometimes it can take several seconds for one to fall into view and then you’ve got to snag it still by matching it. The faster you start making your way to an 8x multiplier the better!

  1. Make sure you cash out your daily spins

Daily spins give you coins. Even if you aren’t going to be playing the game right at that moment, it doesn’t hurt to pop into Bejeweled Blitz once a day to collect your daily spins. You’ll need all the coins you can accumulate in order to purchase boosts, bonus gems, and other special items. Unless you’re okay with paying for coins in real money, I suggest stock piling coins whenever you can.

  1. Collect coins in-game

Cashing in daily spins isn’t the only way to collect coins. In game you’ll see several gems that look like they contain coins. That’s because they do. I always pay attention to these gems because they put more coin in the bank for when I want to use bonuses or special items.

If you have some down time, it’s never a bad idea to just play rounds without bonuses or boosts in order to accumulate coins. I do this from time to time just to build up a coin bank for the times I’m having a good play day and want to cash some out.

  1. Invest in Three Essential Boosts Before You Start Playing

Before you start up any game, use some of those well-earned coins and cop these boosters – the Plus Five Seconds boost, the Detonator and the Scrambler. The first boost is a passive boost that you won’t have to manually active during play. As for the last two boosters, use them in conjunction with Phoenix Prisms for higher scores. So what we’re really saying is – use these three boosts alongside your Phoenix Prism’s.

  1. Daily Spins = More Coins!

Try to log-in everyday if you’re really ready to take over this game’s leaderboard. Take advantage of your daily spin’s and you’ll eventually be swimming in coins. Those coins help you buy all those useful powerup’s and boosts and keep your real money in your real live wallet. Hit them spin’s and cash out!

  1. Cat’s Eyes and Phoenix Prism’s Will Net You Higher Scores

A dedicated player from Yahoo’s Voices blog explained the correct usage of cat’s eyes and phoenix prism’s:

When you’re ready to rock a high score, purchase the Phoenix Prism rare gem at the next opportunity. Activate the gem in-game at every time you are able to do so. In my experience, you have the most point-earning potential using the Phoenix Prism. After your game, you may get the opportunity to purchase another prism at a reduced price. This can happen at least two times. Take advantage of the opportunity-this is why you’ve saved your coins! It gives you an extra chance to win. Other helpful gems include Cat’s Eye and Blazing Steed. While those are useful, I’ve never achieved a weekly high score with them-only with the Phoenix Prism.

  1. Maximize Your Four Gem Combos By Saving Them

As most Bejeweled Blitz users already know, creating a chain of 4 gems will give you a special gem that detonates the gems around it. Instead of detonating these right away, I always save them for as long as I possibly can so I have a ton of them left on the board. Try to avoid detonating them at all costs and work on increasing your overall multiplier before even thinking about detonating them. You’ll be glad you did when you’ve got a cascading burst of gems detonating at 8x your original score!
