I guess it's just a different lottery culture in Brazil, but their games are all big. They don't have much in the way of smaller prizes. Check out what I mean:

Mega-Sena (Mega Six)

Matrix: 6/60

No Minimum Jackpot, usually starts around R$ 1 Million.

Match 5: About R$ 25,000

Match 4: About R$ 250

25% of the prize pool goes into some reserve fund, I don't know what it's for. 

Dupla Sena

Matrix: 6/50

Two sets of numbers are drawn. The first set drawn only counts if you match all 6. If you match 5 in the first set, it doesn't count. The second set wins if you match 4 or more.

Match 6 - First Set : Usually starts around R$ 300,000

Match 6 - Second Set : Around R$ 200,000, rolls down to the other 2nd set prizes if not won? (not sure)

Match 5 - Second Set: Usually around R$ 3,000, has gotten up to $12,000

Match 4 - Second Set: Around R$60

Quina

Matrix: 5/80

Probably the easiest game to win, even though the overall odds are about 1 in 200. Costs R$ 0.50

Match 5: Starts around R$100,000, grows similarly to TN Lotto 5.

Match 4: Around R$ 2,500

Match 3: Around R$ 75 

Lotomania

Mania is right. You have to pick 50 numbers out of 100 in this one! Fortunately, they only draw 20. If you match 16-20, or no numbers right, you win. I'm not even going to describe the prizes. The top prize is around R$ 500,000.

      Jimmy:

      Where did you find this out? 

      I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

          for such a big nation as Brazil, they don't have too many winners nin their national games.

            I translated it via AltaVista from the Caixa (the agency that runs the lottery) website.
