I'd agree with the 2002 Gambling Online Magazine assesment - when Vegas Red won casino their casino of the year. Vegas Red does everything pretty well, without excelling anywhere. They have Playtech software, decent support, and a pretty good bonus.
Playtech software is reliably good and easy to use. You'll see a number of casinos who use it. This means that it's fair (believe me, Playtech make far more money selling fair software than they could ever rip you or me off for) and that they put a good amount of effort into improvements (both big and little).
Cashouts are kind of slow unless you're a VIP (and I'm not... yet). There's the usual "pending" time (1-4 days) and then they say to allow 5-7 days for Neteller processing. I did get money out quicker, so they might just be estimating a worst case.
Support were polite, if unyielding, when I contacted them about the length of time cashouts took. I'd assume that this is standard quality of their service, and it's nothing to complain about.
First Deposit = 100% to $100 (plus $22 more if you deposit $200). It's a loan though, so your variance will be pretty huge.
Second Deposit = 25% to $200 (plus $22 more if you deposit $800) *This deposit is possibly elligible for an extra 10% or 15% (depending on deposit method) if it is over $200. I'll keep ya'll posted as soon as I get $800 together (unexpected expenses kind of put a hole in my bankroll last week).
Third Deposit = 50% up to $200 (plus $22 if you max out the bonus by depositing $400). *This deposit may also be elligble for an extra 10% or 15% as above*
Fourth Deposit (Only for players who maxed out the other three bonuses) = 100% match to $200 max (plus $22 if you max this one out). This bonus is worth $1.45 per dollar deposited.
The second bonus isn't very valuable, and it's a lot of money to put on the line. I guess whether you max it out or not depends on how big your bankroll is and how committed you are to the idea of playing any favourable situation. Me, I'm aiming to max it out (the more action you give casinos, the more bonuses they give you in the future, thinking you're a sucker).
Remember the bonus is a loan though, so you have to be ahead before you get any money out of them - this pretty much means some big sized betting at the start.
