What Is the Weekly Contest in Candy Crush Saga?

Time to Compete!

The weekly contest as the name implies is a weekly event in Candy Crush Saga. In this quick guide I am going to explain what these events are and how they work.

What Is the Weekly Content?

The weekly content is a competitive event in the game. During the event, people compete to win levels and get onto a leaderboard. The people who place in the top three spots get rewards.

How to Get Rewards From Weekly Content Events

You need to place in the top three spots. No other spots get rewards. You will need to beat more levels than most of the people that are competing with you.

What Kinds of Rewards Can You Get?

You get boosters to help you beat levels! You get better rewards if you finish in the first place.

What Do I Think About Weekly Contests?

The events are fun. But I can’t believe how many levels people can beat in such a short time.

I have seen some people beat hundreds of levels during these events. I like the game, but I won’t play it all day. I can’t be bothered to try to get into first place.

Getting into third place can be easy, though. As often, most of the players added to the leaderboard are not even trying.

The event is also a nice way to keep track of how many levels I can beat in a week.
