This neglects to indicate that you also NEED to upgrade other sections like stars given for combat, dispatch etc in order to rack up 100 stars per worm killed. Also by upgrading is how you get bigger multiplier. At first i only had upgraded what suki said and only got 5x multiplier and got only 50k stars in about forty mins, after i upgraded fully then that's when stuff described in the guide started happening.
So with that said, grind a bit to fully upgrade the combat related(or all if you could) , then go like the OP says
