From Vic,

Ive been trying to create a way 5-spot ticket that is affordable for me to play (no more than a 20-way-5 at 50 cents per way for a ticket cost of $10). I did see one of your tickets you said is the best 12-way-5, 16 numbers grouped 3-3-3 2-2-2 1 and found some success.

I have come up with a ticket with 20 numbers grouped 3-3-3-3 2-2-2 1-1 resulting in a 22-way-5. Could you comment on this ticket or suggest a better one?

Here are some 20-way-5s for you, all worth consideration:

21-way-6 20-way-5 11-way-4 6-way-3
6-way-2  4-way-1

And lets not forget probably the two best:

3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2 and 3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2, with 22 and 23 spots respectively.

The best way tickets usually consist of groups roughly half the size of the desired way, in this case half of five is 2, so the best tickets will have mostly ways of 2s and 3s.
