Almost every major gaming title these days employs the ‘pay to play’ strategy and puts essential items and features behind a paywall. If you don’t wanna splurge extra money on gift boxes and premium features, it may take you more time to get through the game. You may also miss out on some cool stuff along the way. While there are certain ways you can avoid spending money on an Android game or app, we will preface this by saying that none of them is legal. If found guilty, you may lose your account on the app for good. If you’re fine with taking that risk, here is how you can get in-app purchases on Android for free.

Get free In-App Purchases on Android with Lucky Patcher
Lucky Patcher is one of the most popular third-party apps used to modify games in order to get in-app purchases for free. This app does not work for multiplayer online games as it would require hacking into the game’s servers. While Lucky Patcher may work on certain apps on a non-rooted phone, its functionality will be extremely limited. Root your device to get the most out of Lucky Patcher. Lastly, it goes without saying that getting in-app purchases for free using a third-party app is illegal and violates Google’s TOS.
If you’re okay with that, here’s how you can use Lucky Patcher to get free in-app purchases.
Step 1: Download and install Lucky Patcher on your Android device from the official website.
Step 2: You may get a notification to update the app. Tap on ‘Update’ in the popup box.
Step 3: Scroll down and select your desired app. If the subheading says ‘in-app purchases found’, it means Lucky Patcher can access the purchases for free.
Step 4: Tap the app and select ‘Menu of Patches’.
Step 5: Select the check box for ‘Support patch for Inapp emulation’ and hit Apply. This patch will let you bypass the payment option in your selected game or app.
Step 6: If your selected app supports a Custom Patch, tap on it and apply it to the app. Once applied, launch the app to use it.
Step 7: Install Multi-patch if you see an option for it. A multi-patch takes care of purchases as well as licensing. This means you will be able to use all the premium features for free without paying for a subscription.
Step 8: For some apps, you may need to select ‘APK without Licence Verification’. This option lets you use paid apps for free.
Step 9: Tap the ellipses at the top left corner of the screen and select ‘Download custom patches’ to download all the patches available for your selected app. While this may take care of all the paid purchases, downloading more patches than you require can lead to frequent crashes. We’d suggest manually going through the patches and downloading the ones you need.
Step 10: Launch the app and click on a paid purchase. You will be able to use it for free.
Use Lucky Patcher on a non-rooted Android phone
For non-rooted Android devices, Lucky Patcher creates a modified version of the APK that bypasses the payment process for in-app purchases. This may not work for every app, but it’s worth a shot if you don’t want to root your phone. Here’s how you can go about it.
Step 1: Launch the Lucky Patcher app and update it if you see the option in the side menu.
Step 2: Select your desired app. If the subheading says ‘InApp purchases found’, you will be able to get around the payment process.
Step 3: Select ‘Menu of Patches’.
Step 4: Select ‘APK rebuild for InApp and LVL emulation. If you don’t see this option for the app, you will not be able to bypass the payment procedure. Your only option now is to root your device.
Step 5: Select ‘Rebuild the App’.
Step 6: Tap on ‘Go to File’.
Step 7: Select ‘Uninstall and Install’.
Step 8: In the popup box, tap ‘Yes’. This will remove the original version of the app from your device and install the modified version.
Step 9: Once the modified version of the app has been installed, launch the app to use the paid features for free.
