Click on the PLUS sign directly you have used one life in the game and ask for more lifes. That way your friends see the request while you are playing the remaining lives and send you lives. You just need to reload the game for getting their answers when your lives are used.
As you all know, games on Facebook are called social games. In Bubble Witch Saga we haven’t yet discovered any limitations for how social you can be! You can request more energy from friends as often you want to.
The limitation with requesting extra lives is not that bad. The only that is mandatory when asking for more lives is that you have used at least one of your lives at your own at the moment.
This means that you can ask for more lives as soon as you have used one life. If you have a few friends online at the same time, you can chat with them and tell them when you have requested for a life in Bubble Witch Saga or ask them if it is ok to request for a life.
You can also send free lives to friends by clicking on the small red hearts with a plus sign (picture) on them. Those hearts are not activated all the time. You will have to wait for a certain time (maybe 2 hours?) before you can send a heart to the same person again. But you can respond to their requests for extra lives as often as you update the game.
And the best thing of all is that any life you get from a friend when your life cap is full is converted to 100 coins, so you get loads of coins if you don’t use as many lives that you receive!
Whenever you level up, fail a level or enter a level you have a list of friends to the right, that list also contains hearts to click on for sending them extra life as a much appreciated in-game gift.
If you see green check marks instead of hearts you have recently sent a life to that person.
[update] There are no more Adverts in Any of the King Games since June 2013, this post is no longer accurate, but remains here for historical reasons or something like that… :P
I haven’t managed to lure any ads to pop up in-game, but I am working on it. I played Bubble Witch Saga and used Facebook in English until today. My friend that is using Facebook in Swedish have got five free lives in the past 24 hours. At first when she told me that she is getting free lives from thin air, when reached 0 energy I didn’t believe her.
She couldn’t tell me what she clicked to get those free hearts or anything. But fortunately I had the opportunity to sit beside her earlier today and could see the in-game ad popup myself. It IS real!
One other difference that I sadly can not reproduce with our accounts is that she NEVER ever use facebook coins. But I have now changed my facebook to Swedish and I have high hopes for free lives. :D I’ll keep this post updated!
About 30-40 games later, no free lives, no pop-ups for any commercials:
Nothing yet and the “wrong” language at Facebook starts to irritate me. I know that fb-apps tends to be treating customers differently overall, but it isn’t fun AT ALL when one self feel mistreated…. :P

I got the picture from my friend today, so here is a picture that someone really get the free lives. The funny thing is, she clicks to accept watching a commercial and then there is a white screen for a second and she gets her so much wanted extra life. No ad seen.
[ Last UPDATED by Admin on February 16, 2012 at 20:02, changes to fit the new great feature that turns lives into coins ]
This is a tip I know that many of you are going to appreciate. Energy in Bubble Witch Saga has a cap of, five, six, seven or at this point max eight hearts right know. You get extra lives from friends, but the problem is that you get them even when you already are at the energy peak of your own.
I have devised a trick for saving lives until I need them. It is totally legitimate and will safe you a lot of hearts.
My cheat for sparing hearts is multi tabbing for all other tasks in the web. All modern browsers allows you to use many tabs, so just pin the game and never close your browser. On this picture I have four tabs open. I tend to have the tab Bubble Witch Saga open all the time and I just do all the other browsing in other tabs. Doing it like this you can play all your energy, reload your page and have a lot of hearts to collect. If you close the tab with Bubble Witch Saga in between times you play your hearts will be changed to coins when you load the game with the energy cap reached.
I have also noticed that the hearts/coins tends to buffer up somehow with this method. So when I load I get say six hearts and if I reload again in ten minutes, there is hearts transformed into coins that have been sent to me hours ago!
This is great when you go to do your domestics, go to school or work, you leave the tab open on your computer and let the time go buy, you return later on and continues in the same tab, play your hearts and then use all the gifts that you have stored!
Tabbed browsing is just so great, don’t you think?! :D
I wonder if it is just something especially for me, or maybe an overall in-game thing. The price for me to fill up my hearts to seven would be just 9 facebook coins. I remember that I sometimes a few weeks back was thinking, that almost everything is fair priced in Bubble Witch Saga, but not the energy fill. I remember it as something like several euros, maybe 39 facebook coins. If you have any idea, please let me know, okey?
[the post have been updated 16/12 2011, see end of post] oooh..! Wait a minute, I don’t want to buy free coins! Do you? :lol: But I am really wondering what there might be in those files that claims to give you hearts, energy, unlimited life and humongous amounts of in-game coins, that up loaders try to sell to people through Youtube videos. I found many users on Youtube that have uploaded guides on what their programs supposedly do. They all have the same in common, they doesn’t show any proof that something actually would be added. I.e because they do not have enough video editing skills to add the proof, I suppose. The videos are maybe stolen or shared, the same video accursed many times, you see.
This people links in the videos or in the descriptions to download places on different locations on the Interweeebz, the one thing the download sites seem to have in common is… Surveys!!! You get an announcement to take a survey, where you probably end up e-mail-spammed as hell or loosing money on sending messages with your phone. Yes of course, you get those zillions of facebook coins, game energy, a boyfriend, eternal life for free, I almost forgot. ;-)
I added a few example videos in the end of the post, they are all the same genre, promising a lot, proof of nothing. I added so many videos, because I think they are going to be removed from Youtube ASAP. At least I hope so. There are very many videos like this on Youtube right now, I flagged a few, but clicking and flagging hundreds of videos doesn’t seem that good idea. :P
I read the description on one of these sites that offers the paid download surveys:
ShareCash is a revolutionary, next-generation upload site, where you get paid CASH for every download you get! We offer the highest payouts per download, as well as a set of great tools, tutorials, and support to get you earning in no time. Simply register, upload files, and let the cash start rolling in!
So in the end there is probably some non-working java-apps to download and no risk to get juicy viruses. If you get really unlucky you don’t even get anything that looks like a program to hack Bubble Witch Saga, they might just let you download their failed mathematics tests.
Try to swim safe, my fellow bubblers, you actually just have to remember one single thing:
If it seems to good to be true, it probably is to good to be true!
[update 16/12 2011] I got a comment in my inbox on Facebook, that tipsed me that there actually are people that have tried to use cheats like this. Someone have got even a login-success with facebook actually, witch suprises me greatly. But none of the five angry feedbacks have got extra life’s as promised. One ended up with 18£ phone bill. Oh my God, he/she could have bought so many in-game goodies for that money, poor bastard. You can read the comments yourself.
[25/12 2011] I found this on vimeo as well, same bullshit as fpund on youtube I think?
I am sorry to tell you that this article is historical. The new cap for lives is five. [update autumn 2013]
By unlocking Charm of Life (get 20 stars) you are entitled to buy the magic Charm of life for 99 Facebook coins. That entitle you to a permanent cap of eight lives instead of the ordinary five. But…! By being an eager bubbler, you can get one extra life(total of six hearts) at 90 stars, so bubble on my fellow witches, bubble! If you don’t have the money, do the time, haha!
At 110 Stars you get a cap of seven hearts at once.
At 250 Stars you get a cap of eight hearts at once.
