What Are These Chests?

So you are playing Candy Crush Soda Saga, and the game drops a chest and tells you to go get a key.

How Mystery Chests Work

  • You need to beat levels to the chest.
  • Then you need to beat levels until you reach the key
  • Don’t run out of time.

What Are Mystery Chests?

Sometimes the game will throw you a mystery chest. These chests contain rewards that you can get for free.

How Do I Get Rewards From Mystery Chests?

You need to get to the key before time runs out. Once you reach a mystery chest, a bat character will drop a key on a future level. I am not sure how the game determines how far ahead to drop the key. 

You need to beat levels until you land on the level with the key. If time runs out before you get the key, you don’t get anything.

What I Think About Mystery Chests

Mystery chests work great if you already have boosters active. You will be able to beat many levels fast.

Mystery chests are not so fun when you get stuck on a very hard level and get stuck for a long time.

Just try to reach the key when possible. I often try to get to Mystery chests most often when other events are active.
