EDIT:

In the above code, make sure to reload the InterstitialAd in the Java code after it is shown each time. So, the modified code shall become like below:

        loadInterstitialAd();
    }




    private void loadInterstitialAd(){

                    }
                });
    }





    public void buttonInterstitialAdShow(View view){
