Two lucky people are today facing the happy choice of what to do with a cool £1 million after winning the top prize in the monthly NS&I premium bond draw. In addition, hundreds of others have walked away with runner-up prizes ranging from a life-changing £100,000 to a handy £1,000. Are you one of the lucky winners for this month?

Two lucky new premium bond millionaires

The first of July’s new premium bond millionaires lives in Tyne & Wear and holds the winning bond number 392SK696449. The winning bond was purchased just three months ago in May 2020. The second winner lives in Surrey and wins their dream £1 million prize with bond number 297WB837011 purchased in March 2017.

Even more people with reason to celebrate a premium bond win

July sees seven premium bond holders bag a runner-up prize of £100,000. The winning holders come from across the country and include one investor from overseas too. Those in the UK hail from Devon, Sefton, Norfolk, Dorset, Buckinghamshire and North Yorkshire. The winning premium bond numbers for the £100,000 prize are 340HH545952, 304SF043762, 388AX470963, 301CE737844, 273FL603794, 97VM033371 and 274RT699656, respectively.

No less happy will be the dozen £50,000 prize winners – one of whom scooped their prize with a premium bond bought for just £25! Also celebrating will be the 27 premium bond holders who won £25,000 and the 67 people who are now £10,000 better off. Again, special congratulations here to the premium bond holder who scooped this prize with just a £50 investment – that’s quite a return!

132 bonds gained a handy £5,000 for their holders and finally an amazing 2,120 people can celebrate the easing of Coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the UK with their £1,000 prize money.

Out of these thousands of winners, we must mention the single lucky winner from our own home county of Norfolk, holding bond number 5DP775597 who today is £1,000, richer with a premium bond purchased for just £1 nearly fifty years ago in November 1971!

Huge congratulations to them and all the July premium bond draw winners.

Have you won big but don’t even know it?

Amazingly, NS&I is currently sitting on top of £63 million worth of unclaimed premium bond prizes – meaning you could have a sizeable windfall waiting that you know nothing about!

People don’t always keep their premium bond details updated and so NS&I is unable to contact lucky winners. No matter how old your premium bonds are, it’s vital that you keep NS&I informed of changes of address or contact details. A simple way to do this is by managing your premium bonds online. It’s easy and any winnings you have will be paid directly into your account. Find out more by visiting nsandi.com/register.

To check and see if you’re a winner, simply go to NS&I’s free online Premium Bond Prize Checker, or, smartphone users can download the app from the App Store or Google Play.
