Most of the variant game styles have a gravity factor that allow leftover pieces made from lines to fall into empty spaces left in the matrix. If those pieces that "settle" complete the lines below, those lines count toward this achievement.

The variants that support the gravity factor are Gravity, (duh!) Split, Chill, Flashlight, Flood, Ledges, Laser, Magnetic and Scanner. If you want to get it the easiest way, I would just stick with Gravity mode. I would avoid the other games for various reasons unless you want to get it naturally. In that case, Flood and Magnetic tend to make their own cascades.

The fastest way to get this would be to start a Gravity variant game on level 1. Build up your pieces like you would for Tetrises, with one space on either side. Instead of dropping the straight line down into the empty hole, cover the hole and put the straight line on top of the now blocked slot. Now when you get rid of the line that blocks the hole, the straight line will fall down getting 4 cascade lines. Do this over and over, and it should take no time to unlock this one!
