The OP was talking about games on an Android, so I'm assuming it's either a tablet or cell phone.

It works in a similar way on Android. Simply substitute "computer" with "tablet" or "phone".

While technically true, many users choose to not pay additional funds for premium services. I sure don't when I have a free alternative. If you want to make money, go for it, but make the experience worth my while as a customer.

It is a kids game. Fun Kid Racing (a series of games) by Tiny Lab Productions.

Not at all. Only a child touches it, no one else. I maintain it. Runs AVG, but only kids games installed and nothing else is downloaded. Wanted to get a firewall, but then this happened on the game. So I need to block ads or remove all kids games because, well, I can not monitor 24/7 the children while games are played that in range up to 7 years of age. No adults touch it because when no in use by children, it is off.

I know others hate this idea, but one thing you might be able to do is to block the ads with your router. Most modern routers should allow you to do this. Mine has a partnership with OpenDNS where I can log into my account and add certain domains to the blacklist. You may be able to do this which could possibly prevent the ads from reaching the tablet. Plus, it might help to prevent your kids from installing something on your tablet that should not be there.
