Winning big on your premium bonds is the stuff that dreams are made of. However, it’s a dream that has now turned into reality for hundreds of lucky people, with two lucky winners scooping the top prize of £1 million each. Dozens more have also won other prizes running from £10,000 to £100,000 – but the question is: are you a winner this month?

New premium bond millionaires for November

This month’s new million-pound winners come from Norwich and Cumbria, with the winning premium bonds numbers being 176LR488412 and 168TK729554 respectively. Both bonds were purchased less than 10 years ago and have garnered quite a return for the winners’ initial investments of £10,000 and £5,000. Many congratulations to both!

Other premium bond winners walk away with thousands

Although they might have missed out on the massive £1 million top prize, the six lucky people who won £100,000 are likely not crying into their caviar this morning! The winning premium bond numbers for these prizes are 125LT096180, 361QE862809, 207EH977812, 236CR835802, 339PK478995 and 356DY117935. These lucky six hail from across the UK, with registered addresses in Manchester, East Sussex, Cambridgeshire, Dorset, Bristol and Cornwall. Even better, one of these winners has claimed a £100,000 prize from a modest investment of just £1,000 purchased in March this year. That’s quite a return!

Some 34 other winners walked away with prizes of £50,000 or £25,000, while over 2,100 fortunate folks have netted prizes from £10,000 down to £1,000.

Are you a winner but don’t know it?

NS&I estimates that there are over £63 million worth of unclaimed premium bond prizes waiting for lucky winners to step forward. It would be a cruel twist of fate to have won big and yet not even know that you have thousands in prize money gathering dust in a vault. That’s why it’s vital that you keep NS&I updated on any changes to your contact details – most importantly your current address.

Looking for a guaranteed return on your savings?

While winning big with premium bonds is one way to grow your investment, there are other ways to save that – although they may not net you a £1 million prize – can offer you the best interest rates and a choice of access options.

For those who’d like a pot of savings they can dip into when they need to, there’s a host of easy access savings accounts. On the other hand, if you are happy to leave your cash untouched then a notice savings account or fixed rate bond might be a great way to earn better interest.
