Despite what the achievement description states I just got this in a custom board

Im not sure if this was a game mistake or not but I created a 'Custom' board from the main menu and changed the mine count to 64 and left the other settings alone, upon my first click I revealed a 6 then on my second click I revealed a bomb and the achievement popped.

Note: It seems you do not have to actually reveal a 6 this way either.

Here's a video I created, you'll note I actually get a 6 and the achievement doesn't pop, but does once I hit a bomb.
