Ads on Android when not online or using apps

Just in the past 3 days I started getting ads pop up that completely block my whole screen on Android. Each one says "Ad", and each one features some product available from Google Play; some are for Hulu, some are from Seekers Notes, Candy Crush, and some are for apps I do not have, such as QuickBooks. Each has an "X" at the top left side that I can close out. But a few minutes later, a new ad will come up. I uninstalled the apps for each of the ads that related to the app I had. I installed Malware bytes and ran it, found two items that it removed, but I am still getting the ads. I restarted my phone. I did not uninstall Play Store yet; is that the next step? What else is there to do?
