Star Wins is the latest incarnation of the Daily Star’s online gambling presence. Over the years they’ve had bingo and slot sites on other platforms. The most recent was with The Bear Group who were behind Spin Genie and Slingo.com. Sadly The Bear Group has closed and Star Wins has now moved to Jumpman. Mind you all the other networks previously used by The Daily Star have also closed so this could be a case of fourth time lucky. Players visiting Star Wins can play a number of top class slots, live casino games and online bingo.
Star Wins Welcome Bonus
New players to Star 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 Star 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. Star Wins doesn't offer any exclusive promotions nor does it have any social media presence.
Star 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 Bronco Spirit, Starburst, Mustang Gold, Fishin' Frenzy, 9 Pots Of Gold, Rainbow Riches, Chilli Heat and Book Of Oz. 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 Star 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 Star 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
It’s always exciting when a big brand jumps on to a new network. Will they bring something new to the table? Will there be anything exclusive? How will it stand out from the crowd? Sadly Star Wins doesn’t satisfy any of those questions and instead falls in line with the 170+ other Jumpman brands with the same slots, same promotions and same bingo. Within a small group of sites (such as the old Spin Genie, Pocket Fruity group) that might not be such a bad thing, but in a stable of multiple brands that’s not so good. Not that this should be a surprise as Star Wins didn’t do much in it’s previous incarnations other than hire Vinny Jones for an endorsement.
That all said the Jumpman is decent enough for slot players. It’s not that great for bingo although the changes that have recently been made are a step in the right direction. The addition of new live casino games is also a positive. We would like to see more progressives, better organisation of the games 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.
