The house edge of this version game is 1.35%. Few casinos that offer this version include the Rio Suites, MGM Grand, the Wynn and the Mirage. These casinos are the classy places and have higher betting than any other casino.
Few casinos here just offer European Roulette. The casinos include: the Las Vegas Hilton, Nevada palace, Caesars Palace, Monte Carlo, Paris and the Stratosphere. All these casinos offering European Roulette have the house edge of 2.7%. These do not offer the half back rule. This half back rule is also referred to ‘en prison’ rule.

Few of the people say that playing the game that has negative expectations would definitely ruin the player. That is true actually. It is just a matter of time. But, one should look for the cost when playing the game. The player should know how much he is spending in an hour to play the game. For instance, if the player places a bet of $5 on the table with half back rule and if it is 50 spins per hour, the player would lose about $3.37 per hour in long term.
The American Roulette costs the player $13.15 per hour. This is the main reason that many people are suggested to play at the recommended casinos that offer European Roulette.
