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.

The Spin On Express Wins
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. Express Wins does get the nod ahead of Star Wins because of a 20 spins no deposit bonus – something which only a handful of Jumpman sites currently offer. One thing that isn’t great though is the £2.50 withdrawal fee. For high rollers this may not be so bad but for players withdrawing smaller amounts it’s a costly penalty.
