Vegas Red Casino Review

Vegas Red Casino Summary

Vegas Red is an interesting casino with some great & weak aspects. It offers some of the most aggressive promotions (if a little confusing) where new players can claim up to $888 in bonuses (after several deposits). Vegas Red offers a wide range of games including the Blackjack Switch variant with a house edge of just 0.05% and some of the best slot variants.

In principle this is a great casino but Vegas Red feels a little stale to when playing. A little more attention to dealer voices & music would go a long way.

Love: Great promotions - Blackjack Switch - Nice slot variants

Hate: Below average playability - Boring atmosphere

Awards: Best Blackjack

Bonuses & Promotions - Vegas Red Casino

$888 (in 4 instalments)

Vegas Red currently promotes a bonus up to $888 to new players, well yes and no. Strictly speaking the (initial) sign up bonus is a 100% match bonus up to $200, this is awarded instantly and comes with a very reasonable wagering requirement of 16x the bonus ($3,200).

On your second deposit, the bonus is a 25% match up to $200 (on a deposit of $800). The conditions of this bonus are very unfavourable, the wagering requirements work out to 80x the bonus, best to keep your 2nd deposit minimal.

Your third deposit bonus is a 50% match bonus up to $200 with a wagering requirement of 48x the bonus, fair but not great.

Finally on your fourth deposit, the bonus is a repeat of the initial bonus, a 100% match up to $200 with a wagering requirement of 16x the bonus.

The remaining $88

To add to the confusion if you claim for the full bonus amounts at each promotion they'll give you an additional $22 deposit (which makes up the remaining $88).

Overall 2 of these promotions are great, 1 poor and 1 awful. At least half of the $888 is well worth going for, which blows away most of the competition.

Best for Blackjack

Powered by Playtech software, Vegas Red offers a very wide range of games covering all the table & card classics as well as some interesting slot games, it's one of the few types of casinos which can rival a Microgaming casino for slots.

What really caught our eye was some of the low edge games on offer. In Craps, players are able to place 3x Odds bets which lowers the house advantage to 0.34%. Vegas Red also offers a Blackjack variant called Blackjack Switch with an house advantage of 0.05%. In this variant the player plays with 2 hands and is able to swap cards between the 2 hands, the best we've seen.

Stale atmosphere & below average playability

Despite some of the great game variants the overall playability of this casino seemed a little poor. This is particularly true of the table & card games, mainly due to the stale music & dealer voice. This is less true of their slot games which are surprisingly fun particularly the ones which feature bonus games, although they do have some which attempt to give a real life look to a slot machine, bad idea.

10-15% Bonus on certain payment methods

Vegas Red offers some generous bonuses on certain deposit options. Players using FirePay, NETeller, InstaCash, Moneybookers, Citadel, paysafecard, 900Pay, Instadebit or EcoCard get a 10% bonus. Players using Wire Transfer or Bank Draft get a 15% bonus. These bonuses do however come with a wagering requirement of 2x the bonus & deposit amount which equate to 44x the bonus (31x for the 15% bonus), but because the actual bonus amounts are small these can be easily met in game session.

Withdrawals take 4-5 days depending on the method.

Customer Support - Vegas Red Casino

A little lazy

Vegas Red offers all the usual support by free phone & email 24/7. When we first contacted their customer support team by email we did get a reply within 24hrs, however we did find their reply a little lazy compared with what we've seen from other casinos.
