Get ready to be bedazzled by a true gem with Jewel Blitz, one of the most popular games at Skillz.
Jewel Blitz is an interesting combination of popular block-builder games and Tetris, which is still a classic. The concept of the game is easy to play, but winning the game is a good mental challenge.
When the game opens, the boxed area that takes up most of the screen is blank, save for many smaller, empty boxes. The bottom row has three jewels that are shaped reminiscent of Tetris.
When the game starts, you have two minutes to complete the rows but don’t touch the top.
If you make it longer than your opponent, you win.

Jewel Blitz gives you the option of playing two main tournament styles. There are the brackets and the head-to-head tournaments. Both offer an interesting twist, making the game even more competitive, fun, and possibly, lucrative.
Brackets: Brackets are played in rounds that are 24-hours long. There is an entry fee of $3, with each bracket having a prize pool of $65, 225 Z points, and 65 Medals. The goal is to reach the top of the bracket. Here is a breakdown of the real-money prizes that are awarded:
Head to Head: Head-to-head tournaments are played between you and one other opponent. This is a fast-paced playstyle, which pins you against others that (hopefully) have the same skill level as you. The skill level is decided by the price of the entry fee. Here is what you can expect when signing up for your first head-to-head tournament:
|Rookie Cash Rumble||$1+50 Z points +1 Medal||$1|
|Jewel Streak||$3+150 Z points +3 Medals||$3|
|Pro Cash Match||$5+250 Z points +5 Medals||$5|
|Jewel Streak||$8+400 Z points +8 Medals||$8|
|Elite Cash Match||$10+500 Z points+10 Medals||$10|
|Champion Cash Match||$20+1K Z points+20 Medals||$20|
|Jewel Streak||$25+1.250 Z points +25 Medals||$25|
|Conqueror||$50+2.5K Z points+50 Medals||$50|
Match codes are kind of like a scavenger hunt for players, as there are different codes all the time. Please note that match codes are not the same as promo codes. Match codes often allow players into games for free, but they are hard to find and change frequently. However, finding them can be half the fun and when you do, the reward can be much greater than a free game. Join the search and maybe you can find a way to enter a Jewel Blitz match for free today!
Ticketz are earned through both real money games and the free to play, practice games. Even though it would take a while, since the Ticketz prices are high, it is possible to win your way into a prize through the free option. However, it is much easier (and likely more fulfilling) to play tournaments and other pay-to-play functions of Jewel Blitz.
Z Points are the secondary currency that all Skillz games accept in lieu of cash for certain portions of the game. For the most part, Z Points can be used to play practice sessions of Jewel Blitz and other games. This way, you don’t have to shell out your hard-earned green when you have no idea how to play the game. When you win during the practice rounds, you receive more Z Points.
Z Points can be accumulated from daily bonuses, winning practice rounds, watching ads (of course) and winning trophies.
Trophies are achievements that can be earned by accomplishing different tasks while playing different Skillz games. For instance, if you win a certain number of games in a row, you can add a new avatar, or play different features for the first time. Trophies help advance your Skillz level and can earn you more Z Points. These trophies are also displayed on your profile for others to see.
