Forty Kiwis have taken out Lotto First Division – the most winners in the games’ 30-year-history – but they will only walk away with $25,000 each.

Wednesday night’s winning numbers (3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13) were picked by people from all around the country.

Bizarrely, it meant the five people who won second division ($27,431) walked away with a bigger prize than 38 of those who won first division.

Two of the lucky first division 40 struck it big – picking up a $2.5 million Powerball prize on top of the $25,000.
