Express Wins Review
The Daily Express is hoping to get back into the online slots and bingo arena with the relaunch of Express Wins. It was originally a brand on the Bear Group (Gaming Realms) platform but even that wasn't The Express' first foray. The Daily Express Bingo followed by The Daily Express Games have all tried to attract players on platforms such as Cyberbingo and St Minver/GT. They'll be hoping for better fortune in the company of Jumpman Gaming which offers players access to slots, bingo and casino games.
Introducing Express Wins
Just like it's sister site at Star Wins, Express Wins also adopts the typical Jumpman Gaming slots site look with the welcome offer dominating the homepage whilst featured slots appear below. A loot chest of Starburst gems plus casino icons such as a roulette wheel, chips and dice look quite stylish. There's minimal reference to The Daily Express, which may be a good thing, and there is also no link back to the newspaper's online presence. Although aimed at mobile slots players, Express Wins is accessible on desktop, tablet and other handheld devices. No app is required.
Express Wins Welcome Offer
As of February 2021 new players receive 20 no deposit spins when they register, add a valid debit card and validate their account. The welcome offer for new players at Express Wins is the standard network offer. Deposit £10 for the chance to reveal a Loot Chest bonus. Register, login and deposit a minimum of £10 to get your reward. By opening the Star Wins Loot Chest you can win you anything from Amazon vouchers to 500 spins on Starburst or Fluffy Favourites. Terms apply and these include a x65 wagering requirement as well as a maximum bonus conversion of £250. Note that Loot Chest wins are not guaranteed so you could possibly end up with nothing for your deposit.
Express Wins boasts a wide selection of slots from leading providers including NetEnt, Yggdrasil, Pragmatic Play, Scientific Games and Eyecon Games. As far as we're aware there's over 600 titles to choose from including progressive, daily drops and megaways. Top slots that can be found at the site include Reel King Mega, Rainbow Riches, Chilli Heat, Starburst, Fluffy Favourites, Safari King, 9 Pots Of Gold and The Goonies. Slots can be found by jackpots, newest, A to Z, popularity and - once logged in - your most played. You will need to use the search facility to locate slingo and megways games.
Express Wins Promotions
The Daily Express Bingo newspaper game was incredibly popular back in the day and Express Wins will be hoping for a similar result. The Jumpman rooms have now gone but bingo products from Pragmatic Play and Bingo Millions are an improvement. This means players can now enjoy 75, 80 and 90 ball games. These rooms are shared with other brands including those on the Nektan platform. Joining the bingo and slots are a few table games such as roulette and blackjack. An expanding live casino section is now part of the Jumpman set up and includes Bacarrat. A few game shows and poker options would be nice.
Player promotions at Express Wins are the standard network offers. These include cashback for regulars and new players, Happy Hour every Wednesday and extra spins of The Mega Reel on deposits of £20 or more. Note that wagering terms still apply to these extra spins of the Mega Reel. A trophies scheme is also in play and this gives players opportunities for further turns on the Mega Reel. Players can increase their status and earn trophies by wagering at Star Wins and completing challenges. Tournaments and prize draws from slot providers regularly take place every month.
Whenever Star Wins launches so does Express Wins. Given that they are sister sites with little deviation from each other our review for both has to be identical. Both look like they will rely solely on their brand presence and not look to stand out from the crowd. This is exactly what happened on other platforms and that didn't work out so well. On a positive note they've at least joined a platform that seems to be developing in the right direction. There are a good selection of slots to play, bingo is improving and live casino games being added.
Most of the player depositing and withdrawal terms at Express Wins are reasonable although withdrawls now cost £2.50 and the x65 wagering on the bonuses is quite hefty. Another issue worth considering is that the welcome bonus is not guaranteed. Whilst yes you can win 500 spins on a slot, you could also win nothing. Only Sun Bingo has been remotely successful with online gambling products and Express Wins has a lot to do to get even close. We'd like to see something exclusive in terms of games and promotions.
