    No. The house edge gained by paying even money on 'Blackjacks', even with 2/1 suited 'Blackjacks', is 1.7%.

    The 3/1 for 3 7's along with allowing players to draw to split Aces is only worth around 0.25% to the player.

    So, the player would be 1.45% worse off compared to regular rules.

    If you wanted to eliminate the extra 1.45% then you could add the rule "All 5-card hands are automatic winners". This would then give you a game with a similar house edge to the regular game.
