Price: Free (usually)
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
November31 is a developer on Google Play with several decent free poker apps. They have some non-creative names like Three Play Poker, Five Play Poker, Twenty-Five Play Poker, and a decent Video Poker app. None of them are super deep or ridiculously great. However, they have the advantage of not being freemium games. In fact, they are entirely free with ad support. The games also have no daily limits and some various other options. This is about as good as it gets for free poker apps and games.

Mega Hit Poker

Mega Hit Poker is an above average freemium poker game. The game boasts a decent number of free chips, tournaments, various game modes, a slots mini-game, and some social elements. You can even record your games to see how you did. The developers also boast an RNG certification from iTech Labs. The certification is accessible in the game's menu. We're not sure if that makes it any better, but we liked this one and so do most of the other Google Play reviewers.

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.

Video Poker Classic

Price: Freemium
DOWNLOAD ON GOOGLE PLAY
Video Poker Classic is a fairly simple video poker app. The developers boast almost 40 game types along with realistic Vegas shuffling. It was okay in our testing, but nothing mind blowing. You also get free coins every four hours, offline support, and more. It doesn't have the best looking UI, but the mechanics are fairly solid. The big story is the almost 40 game types, though. That should keep the game interesting for a long time. It is a freemium game. However, this one isn't as bad as many others in terms of its freemium elements.

It's one of the few freemium poker games that Google Play reviewers seem to actually like. It's didn't do half bad during our testing.
