Random Android users are opening the Google Play Store only to find a banner that says they are getting the opportunity to buy a top app or game (of the paid variety of course) for 80% off. The banner is brightly decorated for Easter, which makes it obvious why Google is giving away this discount. Now before you start opening and closing the Google Play Store in hopes of receiving this discount, there are some caveats.

According to Google, this offer is limited to those in Great Britain, France, Germany and Russia. We would be surprised if U.S. Google Play Store visitors don't receive some similar discount for the holiday.

According to the information sent to the lucky few receiving the discount, besides being limited to certain countries, the discount was awarded "based on past purchase history." Additionally, it appears that different winners are receiving the 80% off coupon with different eligible apps in mind.

How about 80% off Google Drive 1TB storage?

But none of the offered apps were anything I was interested in.

That's why it was random. Thus giving you no choice on which app to slash off 80% of the price.

Google didn't do it's research.. Russians celebrate Easter on May 1 this year as they're predominantly Orthodox.

Apps are cheap to begin with, they need to "discount" atrociously expensive IAPs.
