Whenever The Daily Star relaunches their gambling brand then so does The Daily Express! Star Wins is the offering from The Daily Star so Express Wins is the site for it’s sister publication. This is the fourth incarnation of an Express brand having previously had Daily Express Bingo on Cyberbingo and St Minver and Express Wins on The Bear Group/Slingo platform. Interestingly all three closed down so The Express don’t have the best record. Will their venture onto the Jumpman platform prove to be a longer term adventure?
Express Wins Welcome Bonus
New players to Express Wins are welcomed with an open the chest style bonus offer. Deposit a minimum of £10 to open the Loot Chest where you could win up to 500 spins on Starburst. Other prizes include Amazon vouchers – up to a value of £10. Further spins of the Mega Reel are available when you reload with £20 or more. Any wins from the spins are paid as a bonus and come with a x65 wagering term. Note that in order to make your first withdrawal, at least £10 must have been wagered in real funds. Note that a bonus on your first deposit is not guaranteed.
Promotions at Express Wins have changed recently. All new players gain access to 5% daily cashback and the Free Spins Offer of the month after their very first deposit. There's also a Happy Hour every Wednesday. Play between 3pm and 7pm for the chance to win more spins. Other promos are quite limited but in Winner Winner Chicken Dinner (yes really), the player with the biggest single spin win every month gets a £50 Just Eat Voucher. Tournaments and prize promotions are sometimes run by slot providers although these are not always clearly indicated on the site. Express Wins doesn't offer any exclusive promotions nor does it have any social media presence.
Express Wins offers a good selection of slots and games that are accessible on mobile, tablet and desktop. You can find slots by A to Z, jackpot slots, newest additions, most popular and also your favourites. Popular slots include Mystery Reels, Reel King Mega, Starburst, Rainbow Riches, Fishin Frenzy, 777 Burning Wins, 9 Pots Of Gold and Fluffy Favourites. Some table games are available including a couple of live casino options for roulette and blackjack. The bingo rooms have recently been revamped which means you can now enjoy a better selection of games. That said these are still not overly busy.
No app is required to play Express Wins on mobile. You can login and play as normal with mobile, tablet and desktop. This gives you access to the majority of the slots, casino games and bingo rooms that are available. Depositing at Express Wins is easy and you can fund your account via mobile (although you may incur a fee) as well as Paypal, Paysafecard and debit cards. Note that there's no minimum withdrawal but all withdrawals are charged at £2.50.
The Spins Verdict
Our verdict for Express Wins has to be identical for that of Star Wins – and that’s one of slight disappointment that a big name brand isn’t bring anything new to the Jumpman platform. This means it and Star Wins are now just diluted in a bigger stable of brands – at least on their other platforms they weren’t competing with 170 other sites for players. Mind you we do hope that they don’t resort to using Claire Sweeney to endorse them as they have done previously.
Anyway, as we keep saying Jumpman is a decent enough option for slot players. It’s still not that great for bingo although the changes that have recently been made – thanks to Bingo Millions and Pragmatic Play – are a small step in the right direction. The addition of new live casino games is also a positive. We would like to see more progressive slots, improved organisation of the slots and more sections such as Megaways. One thing that isn’t great though is the recently introduced £2.50 withdrawal fee. For high rollers this may not be so bad but for players withdrawing smaller amounts it’s a costly penalty.
