Sinai billiard systems are studied numerically and analytically. Let h be the Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy, the mean free time of the point mass, and the scaling factor of the size of convex scatters (so that 0 implies vanishing scatters). The following universal behavior is conjectured for any periodic Lorentz model in d(>~2)-space: lim0h(-ln)=d.
