The only good freemium games in my book are:

Quadropus Rampage

and

Dead Ahead

Awesome games worth everyones time. The first one is epic and the second one is fun and extremely generous. I gotten more than 20,000 coins in 1 run. No other game can match that (even paidmium or some so called "premium" game can match that).

- Jetpack joyride
- tiny tower
- plants vs zombies 2
- temple run
- punch quest
- candy crush (ashamed to admit it but yeah it was a great game if you ignore the freemium aspects)

Total spent - $0 - mainly because I despise freemium games and don't want to support the model, that said I wouldn't mind spending a few bucks on PvZ 2, it's great.

I want to suggest Battle Nations because it's the only freemium war game thing with actual gameplay -seriously how do these "games" without gameplay make money- (where is the gameplay in clash of clans,Modern War,War of Nations etc)
Games without freemium elements
Dead Ahead
Jet pack joyride - 7 (Don't judge me)
Quadropus Rampage - doubler
With dual currencies
Avengers Alliance 20 (Again,don't judge me)
Tapped Out (really only worth playing if you are a fan of the show)

Magic 2014 is great, but it's not freemium.

Good freemium games would be:
Plants vs Zombies 2
Nimble Quest
Jetpack Joyride
Temple Run 2
Robot unicorn Attack 2
Subway Surfers
Minion Rush
Angry Birds Go (from what little I've seen)
Zynga Poker

And no I've never spent a penny on them.
