— Main Menu description from Bejeweled Blitz.

A boost is a special power-up that first appeared in Bejeweled Blitz. Each boost has its own special effect that can give players an advantage to achieve higher scores.

Bejeweled Blitz[]

Boosts can be unlocked by meeting the certain criteria for each boost or buying them for Gold Bars. In the Facebook version, some are unlocked by default.

A boost can be upgraded using Shards or Diamonds, depending on the level the boost has. There are 11 boost levels in total, with level 11, called Max in-game, being the maximum level. Each level will amplify the boost's effects. For example, a level 3 Scrambler allows up to 4 scrambles.

Old versions and PC version[]

In old versions of Bejeweled Blitz, the boost menu is unlocked with a bonus 20,000 coins for the player to spend on any of it after the player beats a PopCap friend's score when playing Bejeweled Blitz for the first time. Using up a boost for the first time will unlock the Weekly Leaderboard.

Boosts can be accessed by clicking the 'Boost' button on the Main Menu, or, after a game, the Boost Selector will be at the top of the screen on the Stats screen.

Each Boost has a price that must be paid with coins if the player wants to buy one or some Boosts.

The player can buy up to three Boosts and each Boost bought will last three games. A restart in the middle of a game with a Boost active will consume one use.

Bejeweled Classic[]

Boosts return in an update to Bejeweled Classic in 2017. Boosts can be obtained by either purchasing a boost pack in the game store or watching an advertisement.

Introduced in this game are Super Boosts, which have their button outlines covered in gold and players must wait a specified period of time before it can be obtained from an ad again.
