Spanish term or phrase: momio
Again, referring to the Mexican lottery Pronósticos:

o Para el caso de configuración de juego Mi Progol: Descripción del contenido del archivo: Archivo de texto con el total de partidos a jugar y el momio.
o Para el caso de resultados de juego Mi Progol: Descripción del contenido del archivo: Archivo de texto con los resultados de los partidos programados y su momio.

Is momio here the prize amount?

Thanks again!

Here's a Mexican Google hit probably for the Lottery "Y es que mientras más bajo es el momio, significa que le ven más posibilidades de ganar."

Your sentence seems to me to mean the odds at which money was paid - but I could be wrong.

I've never come across "momio" as an amount and it seems unlikely to me sice it comes from "momia" but then I don't speak Mexican (as George Bush? said).

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you DLyons.

Asker: Unfortunately I just came across another phrase, in which "odds" doesn't appear to fit: El archivo contiene los resultados y momios pagados de Mi Progol de cada lista de juego, así como la información de total de venta y premios. What do you think?

Asker: Ha!! Ah, George Bush ... :) Thanks for the explanation.

agree  neilmac: Funnily enough I first came across this only 2 or 3 days ago...

  -> Thanks neilmac.

agree  Neil Ashby: @ asker "momios pagados" fits as well, "the odds paid out"/ For example: a roullette wheel of 1 to 36, 0 and 00, the 'odds of winning' are '38 to 1', whereas the 'payout odds' are usually 34:1, 35:1 or 36:1 - the casino's long-term winning margin

  -> Thanks Neil.

agree  Catalina Connon: as in "razón de momios" - odds ratio
6 hrs
  -> Thanks Catalina.
