Lives are a fundamental element in Candy Crush Jelly Saga. They appear in the top-left corner in a red heart. When you start playing for the first time, or resuming play after at least two and a half hours, you will have 5 lives, which is the maximum.
When one life decreases, you have less opportunities to play. Let's say you have 5 lives and you get decreased by one, altering the fact of you playing. A life is only decreased when you lose a level. You will then have to wait for 30 minutes for one life to replenish.
If you have one or more lives, then you can click on a level and play it. If you fail the level or press the quit button, a life is lost. When you run out of lives, you will not be able to play any levels, and the "No more lives" screen will show.
To add to your lives, you can ask friends, or use gold bars to refill your lives. Each full refill of lives costs 9 gold bars.
Running out of livesEdit
When you run out of lives, there are five ways to get more lives.
Many people don't want to do any of these, especially waiting. They feel asking their friends is spamming (or they have none online), don't want to wait 30 minutes, don't want to make in-game purchases, and there is no rare offer. Because of this, a fourth way to get lives has developed.
A player can get unlimited lives by obtaining rewards. Unlimited lives are only for a set time period and is shown as an infinity symbol inside the red heart. It is capped at 24 hours, meaning if you obtained a reward that will give you 2 hours of unlimited lives while you have currently have 23 hours, it will increase the timer for up to 24 hours only instead of 25.
If you go "back in time" with your device's clock, you can get infinite time of unlimited lives!
When the timer reaches zero, it will go back to 5 lives.
When the player gets it, they will give back to 5 lives immediately. However, if it is unlimited lives, this feature isn't effective.
