Super Times Play Poker

Price: $1.99
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Super Times Play Poker is not the best name for a poker app. However, it's also one of the few poker games worth playing that don't have in-app purchases. This one is a video poker app that includes three games. You can play Jacks or Better, Double Double Bonus Poker, and Triple Double Bonus Poker. It's not Hold'em or any of the classic variants. However, this is a fun time waster for those who don't want to deal with freemium stuff or advertising. We wish more developers made pay-once stuff like this with more features, but this will do for now.
