How to download paid games and applications for free


In this article, we will tell you how to buy a paid application from the Play Market, and then return the money for the purchase - how to download paid applications from the market for free! This can be done using the wonderful application, which we will now describe in detail.

Lucky Patcher is the most popular and easy to manage application that allows you to make free purchases in in-game stores, disable annoying ads, save .apk files from installed applications, clone applications, apply patches to the system and perform many other operations.

In recent versions of Lucky Patcher, a wonderful feature for installing a modified Google Play store has appeared. After installing it, you can download paid applications, return money, and at the same time, the game or program that we downloaded will not be deleted.

How to download paid games for Android for free:

    Install Root rights and the Busy Box program on your android device. Without root rights and Busy Box Lucky Patcher will not work stably.

  • Install Busy Box on our device. We go into it and make one more installation.
  • We go into the Lucky Patcher, click on the "Tools" tab located at the very bottom and click on the "Install Modified Google Play" item.

  • We select the installation version suitable for your android device. We are waiting for the installation to complete.
  • We go into Google Play and select any paid application. I have this Castle of illusion. We pay it in any way convenient for you: through a bank card, using your mobile operator or PayPal payment system.
  • Click the "return payment" button.

  • Voila. The payment was canceled, and the application remained on our android.

  • The only nuance to be noted is that you can only return money for buying an application made in this way once. By reinstalling the game or program and clicking "return payment", you will not receive anything back.
    In addition, an application downloaded from a modified Google Play store will be unable to update. It will also be impossible to play music and videos from Google Play for free, however, this is not such a big minus.

    In order to get the modified .apk file of the downloaded game or application, you need to do the following:

    1. We go into Lucky Patcher and select the application we need.
    2. In the list that appears, select the menu item “Patch menu”.
    3. Here we click the "create modified apk" button.
    4. Next, select the item of interest to us, for example, “Apk with a cut license” or “Apk with a cut advertisement Google”.
    5. In the next window, check off the first two points and click "rebuild application".
    6. After the process is completed, Lucky Patcher will show the storage location of the created .apk file.

    Another option is to get the original .apk, without any modifications or changes.

    1. We go into Lucky Patcher and select the application we need.
    2. In the list that appears, select the "Tools" item.
    3. In the window that appears, click the first button “Clone application”.
    4. We are waiting for the completion.

    We got apk, and the cache for the game downloaded from the Playmarket lies in the Android / data / ... or Android / obb / ... folder
    Now you can transfer this data to another smartphone or by installing a new one on your device.

    Dear users, if you have any questions, you can always ask them in the comments to the article and we will be happy to answer you.

    Cancellation of purchase

    The first way is to purchase the game and then cancel the payment (not to be confused with the standard method). To do this, go to your personal account, open the order history and select the reason for the refund. The most optimal option is “The purchase was made by chance”, but you can select another item (see photo).

    By the way, in this way you can return money for in-game purchases. In most cases, the payment is returned, but the game currency remains.

    To do this, find the purchase that you want to return in the list and click “Report a problem”, in the window that appears, select the reason for the return. The easiest way to indicate that the purchase was made by accident, but you can choose other options.

    Attention! Do not abuse this method, as the Google Play support service may refuse to refund you.

    Blackmart (Black Market)

    The second way is to download games not from the official Google Play, but from the Blackmart analog application (Black Market - Black Play Market). This program has a very interesting feature - all the games and applications presented in it are absolutely free. The design of the Black Market is simple and convenient, making it as easy to use as a real Play Market.

    2. Download Blackmarket or BlackMart from the official website
    3. Install and run Black Market.
    4. Find the application you need using the filters and click “Download”.

    Hacked Google Play

    The third method is more complex and is implemented using the hacked Play Market, which can be hacked on your own or downloaded already hacked. In order to hack the Play Market you will need Root rights, the BusyBox installer and the Lucky Patcher application.

    If you have all this, then follow the instructions below:

    1. Launch Lucky Patcher, open the “Tools” tab and click “Install Modified Google Play”.
    2. After installation is complete, open Google Play and buy any paid application.
    3. Then we press the button “return payment”.
    4. The payment was canceled and the application remained on your device.

    Remember, you can return money for purchasing the application in this way only once and within 15 minutes!

    To create a modified APK of a downloaded game or application:

    1. Open Lucky Patcher.
    2. Select the desired application.

    4. Next, select "Apk with license cut."
    5. In the next window, check the first two paragraphs and click “rebuild application”.

    Lucky Patcher is a patcher for Android games and applications, with the functions of cutting ads and checking the license. The program also has the ability to clone the APK and replace the original Google Play Market’a with a hacked one to launch pirated versions of the software.

    You may also need the BusyBox installer, which is available for download on Google Play.
