    * If you recently got the newest update (mid-September 2016) then the total number of Winter levels jumped up to 285, giving you a total number of possible stars at 855. This means you can 2-star every level and still get the 500 needed for this achievement.

    The minimum number of levels to get 500 stars ranges from 167 (if you 3-star every level) to 250 (if you 2-star every level). You will likely be somewhere between 167 & 250 when you hit 500 stars.

    I hit my 500 by level 232 on the 360 version and level 224 on the Xbox One version:

    Always shoot for high scores. Here are things that help:
    - Make and use power crystals (windchill, iceberg, glacier)
    - Finish levels with lots of moves left
    - Combo moves and cascades (side-by-side matches & matches that occur immediately after your initial match)
    - Speed multipliers (make several matches in rapid succession)

    If you can't earn stars by skill alone, then you can use/buy the various powerups & helpers the game so greedily offers. It's possible to spend a small/large fortune on this game if you're not careful. Do not allow your kids the ability to buy things on your account. Unless you're rich.

    Every day, there's a chance to get a reward. It comes in the form of a 3x3 grid of covered squares and you pick one square to uncover the reward underneath. The problem is, this feature is glitchy - plagued with server issues and failure to work when it should. When it does work, you have a chance to earn 1-3 lives, a snowball, powerup or ice pick. This should happen right after you select Single Player mode from the menu screen.

    Pre-DLC Guide:
    Since you only get 3 stars per level, the minimum number of levels you need to complete for 500 stars is 167. So any levels you get less than 3 stars will likely bump that number up past that. The current maximum number of levels seems to be 195. If you 2-star all 195, that equals 390 stars. So on top of that, you'd need to 3-star 110 or more levels depending on how many 1-star levels you had.

    Dacius DeciumUpdate: The awards are back as of 6 November 2016. I just started another routine game and the award screen showed up. Choose a snow tile and it will reveal which award you've earned. Afterwards, the game will reveal all of the tiles so you can get an idea of what the other tiles had.

    Happy hunting!

    LonesquiffNow that all the dlc levels are out do stars earned in those count towards this achievement?

    TheDude722It does count the new levels toward the 500 stars. I hit 501 stars on the Xbox One version just now (level 224) and the glorious achievement popped. Now I have to finish this 360 version.

    Ok, so I thought this was obvious, but still wanted to share this. I know I'm writing a solution for a 4 year old, pay-to-win, Candy Crush knock-off plastered with Disney's Frozen characters. The only reason we all downloaded this game was for its low price and 1000G.
    So here we are, wasting our time, trying to get 500 stars to finally deleted this abomination of a game.
    After filing a level, you lose a life. Lives regenerate after a certain time, having a maximum of 5 lives. If timestamps in the achievements are not important for you, simply quitting the game, adjusting the console's clock 1 day forward after disconnecting from Xbox Live will grant you maximum lives. Rinse and repeat each time you are out of lives. If you do reconnect online after moving the clock forward, you will be greeted with a long wait time (I had around 3400 hours to wait before 1 live regenerated).
    This is the oldest trick in my books, hope this will help others grinding for this achievement.
