Don't know if your cassette is tight or not. Need to take it to the shop to check or use the appropriate tools to see for yourself (chain whip and lockring tool). On occasion a cassette needs a spacer as well as being tight via the lockring. What cassette and hub is on the bike? Your links aren't helpful due to poor quality.

If the cassette is loose you can take the cassette off and on the biggest gear there will be 2 or 3 tiny hex bolts that you can tighten and might help.

A loose lockring on a cassette is not uncommon. You need a cassette lockring tool to tighten the lockring. Park Tool website recommends 360 inch pounds torque on the cassette lockring. If you don't want to purchase a tool, a bicycle shop should be willing to tighten the lockring for you for $5 or less. It is a 20 second job.
