This achievement is for reaching a score of 750,000 in Diamond Mine mode.

In this mode, the player must make matches in such a way where the destroyed matched gems, or any explosions created by matching fire or lightning gems, damages surrounding dirt and allowing you to delve deeper into the mine.

You are awarded points for uncovering treasures hidden in dirt blocks. Generally, you should reach the 750k mark around 300-320 meters.

The general strategy is to focus on making matches at the bottom of the screen and strategically using special gems to clear as much of the dirt blocks as quickly as possible.

There is a timer at the top of the screen indicating how much time you have left before the game ends. Be Warned! The in-game timer does not seem to be correctly synced with real time. It seems to be about 5 seconds to fast per minute. Keeping that in mind, you must try and clear each screen as fast as possible. For clearing a screen past the white line, you are awarded an additional 25 seconds. For clearing all dirt blocks on the screen, you are awarded 70 seconds.

Unfortunately, this game mode is heavily luck based. There are times where you are well on your way to making a great score only to be held up by having your only possible move at the top of the screen over and over again. Also, you may have one block on the right side of the screen, and each possible match generating at the left.

Fortunately, there is a good trick that will help you earn the achievement, but it is by no means foolproof. If you press and hold the ‘back’ button on your Windows Phone, it will open up your tabs windows. At this point, it will show you a frozen image of your Bejeweled board and allow you as much time as you need to plan out your next moves. The down side: Constant pausing and unpausing using this method will actually eat up time. The up side: It allows you to take a quick pause if things are getting too hectic, and allows you to avoid making bad choices by allowing you the time to figure out the most strategic matches. If you use this method, try to plan out multiple moves per pause, as doing only one move per pause is not effective.

Even using this method, there is still a large luck factor involved. I would play the game regularly and try to get around 140-160 with about 2 or more minutes on the timer before trying to utilize this strategy. I can confirm that this method does not void either this, or the Relic Hunter achievement.

The important thing is to keep trying. Once you expose yourself to this game mode long enough, you will find yourself recognizing matches sooner and are able to make more efficient matches more quickly. With enough practice, luck, and the trick described above, you should still estimate about 6-10 hours of play until you get this achievement.

Good Luck! You will probably need it.
