Four players from Auckland, New Plymouth, Rangitikei and Wellington have each won $250,000 from Lotto's first division.
Powerball was not struck however and has rolled over to Saturday night, when the jackpot will be $18 million.
The highest Powerball prize was third division's $1612, well below the second division (without the Powerball) prize of $27,182.
The winning numbers were 1, 2, 11, 17, 30, and 35. The Bonus ball was 7 and the Powerball 10.
New Zealand's biggest ever Lotto win - $44 million - went to a Hibiscus Coast couple in 2016.
