Candy Crush Level 417 Cheats and Tips

This is tip 3 of 4 for Candy Crush 417.

Level 417 Cheat #3: Know your board rules.


  • A new perspective and new dimensions can be very helpful! If you’ve been stuck on this level for a long time, try flipping your phone into portrait mode and playing from that perspective.
  • You don’t have to clear all the meringue–just enough to let the ingredients through. Don’t waste valuable moves trying to clear an entire row of multi-layered meringue.

  • Alison Walstra

    So, been stuck on 417 for a week. Those cyclones eat opportunities! If you aim at getting the ingredients down to the bottom of the left side, does this make it possible to complete the level faster? I’ve watched videos.. but just can’t seem to get more than 1.

  • Jenifer Lee

    So when one thinks there is nothing as horrid as level 350 along comes 417. KING doesn’t even give the gamer a board that is not as cyclone loaded. This board is horrid. I have only been able to get one ingredient down

  • Lesley

    So why is it that the bombs can say 10 or 15 but when they get to 1 or 2 they count down to 0 faster than before? I timed it. It just isn’t right.

    • Dolphinlady695

      My bombs always start at 6!!!!! On my first try over 3 weeks ago I only had one nut left and was one from the bottom then a tornado hit that block & I had one move left but no boosters. This level is impossible without boosters. I give up :-(

  • Wendy

    I hate this level. I am going to give it a few more days. If I can’t get through this level then I am done with Candy Crush. This level is just idiotic.

  • Jeffrey Haynes

    Video shows 6 tornado’s, my game has 3. Twice as much damage as my 3. Not fair.

  • Diana Baskin

    I am about to give up on this one. I am not enjoying it because it is more luck then skills. Those things keep taking my moves away. Then the bombs. Was trying to see if there is a way to get rid of the little things.

  • Jo

    I thought level 415 was frustrating beyond belief but this takes the biscuit.I’m only surprised that they haven’t put chocolate on this level just to really hack us off. Some idiot at King has a very warped sense of humour. I’m just about losing the will to live with this game.

    • American by choice

      Shhhh … don’t give them IDEAS :(

  • JayOpinion

    This level may be my undoing and the end of my adventure with Candy Crush. I have actually watched candy not move the way I directed it a couple of times. What’s up with that? I have come close a couple of times but bombs stop me once they move over to the far right. Couple more days and I am done. Hope the company doesn’t mind losing the income.

  • Geertje

    “Unfreeze the coconut wheel on the right-hand side first.” Ha, such great advice but how???? Stupid!

    • Carmen

      That’s right there’s no way to unfreeze the right side first. Somehow that board looks different then mine! It has 6 spinners and 2 coconuts

  • Norman Morris

    You people are real A holes for making this 417 a real POS.

  • harry

    If the whirley things are on a row that you hit with a stripped candy they disappear but it doesn’t help becausebof the flipping bombs ……. really testing my patience no skill involved just luck

  • Mark Heron

    Nothing works, want this level banned

  • Adeniyi Scopeman Bello

    This should be among the hardest level in candy crush, Kings is becoming crazy with dis game setup. I made it only through color bomb and strip color combo at the first move.

  • Shirley Predmore

    When spinning the daily wheel and you land on fish, where they?? Have landed 2-3 times and don’t see them.

    • Bonnie

      You use fishes on jelly levels. They will appear when you get to one of those levels.
