How can I check if I’ve won the Premium Bonds?
Premium Bonds holders can check to see if they’ve won the Premium Bonds every month via the NS&I prize checker.
Investors can check to see if they’ve won big on that month’s Premium Bonds by entering a unique holder’s number into the online tool.
You can find your holder’s number on your Bond record by logging into the NS&I online service. The number will have either 10 or nine digits, or eight digits followed by a letter.
NS&I will pay the winnings straight into your bank account or reinvest them into more Bonds, depending on what you’ve asked them to do.
For any higher value winnings of £5,000 or more NS&I will need to check with you first by sending a claim form in the post for you to complete and confirm how you would like to be paid.
If you defy the odds and win big then you will be notified with a visit in person.
A NS&I representative will visit the two £1 million winners at their homes the day before the first working day of the month and before the rest of the winners are announced 24 hours later.
What are the Premium Bonds?
The NS&I Premium Bonds are a type of savings account which offer tax free prizes through its monthly draw instead of a steady interest rate on your money.
The advantage to Premium Bonds is that you can put money in and take money out whenever you want, and have a chance of winning big each month.
Each £1 bond has an equal chance of winning one of the high value prizes, ranging from £25 to £1 million.
The minimum you have to pay in is £25 and the maximum you can pay in is £50,000.
