Bejeweled Blitz Just Got Even Better With Boosts And Coins

The most popular 1 minute spent on Facebook just got even better! Bejeweled Blitz just released its newest features to the game – boosts and coins!

Two weeks ago we were invited to begin beta testing the new features, and we loved them right from the start. If you love the intensity of Bejeweled Blitz, you are going to enjoy these new features even more.

As you play the new game, you will soon discover the first new feature. Coins. As you play, you will have gold coins fall into random empty places on your board. Match the coins with yellow gems to have them added to your coin balance for double their value. If you miss some, don’t panic. At the end of the game, all coins left on your board are added to your coin total at face value.

As you can see from the image below, we earned 700 coins during our 1 minute round and have a total of 32,000 accumulated.

So what can these coins be used for? Well, boosts of course!

The second feature, sure to literally ‘boost’ your score, is a selection of 5 different boosts. Each of these cost a different number of coins and are purchased before you start the round. Each boost purchase last for 3 rounds. You can also purchase more than one boost at the same time, which can make for an incredibly interesting, and explosive game!

The boosts, their cost and their features are:

Mystery Gem – 6000 coins

Detonate – 2500 coins
Detonates all special gems on the board when you choose to click it

Scramble – 3500 coins

+5 Seconds – 5000 coins

Free Multiplier – 7500 coins

Stay tuned as we will add more info on how to best use these boosts in combination and earn the highest score possible playing Bejeweled Blitz.
