When the player begins a game with Hot Cocoa activated, one of two special starting layouts appears. Both configurations include unique white mugs of hot chocolate. A mug functions identically to a Flame Gem, except a mug clears the middle and bottom surrounding gems and all the gems above and within its column instead. The base value for clearing a mug is 1,500 points. While Hot Cocoa is active, mugs replace random white gems throughout the game, and Flame Gems created using white gems become mugs instead.
After the Last Hurrah, a Coin bonus occurs in which nine mug icons appear in a 3×3 arrangement. When the player selects an icon, it reveals a numerical Coin value that is then added to the player's Coin total. The Coin payouts the bonus offers are 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, 5,000, 8,000, 10,000, 15,000, 25,000, and 100,000.
