July’s £1m Premium Bonds jackpot winners come from County Durham and East Riding of Yorkshire.

The first Bond number drawn was 441KH440355 and belongs to a man from County Durham. The man purchased his winning Bond in February 2021 and he holds £20,025 in Premium Bonds. The win makes the man the fifth Premium Bonds millionaire from the Durham area.

Bond 439DR814317 was the second Bond number drawn. It belongs to a man from East Riding of Yorkshire and was also purchased in February 2021. The man holds the maximum £50,000 in Premium Bonds, with the win making him just the second winner to come from East Riding of Yorkshire.

Both of July’s Premium Bonds millionaires purchased their winnings Bonds in February 2021, meaning that both have won the jackpot in just the fourth prize draw for which their Bonds are eligible.

Checking Premium Bonds prizes

Customers can check to see if they have won on the prize checker, official prize checker app or via their Alexa-enabled device from Friday 2 July 2021.

Customers will need their Premium Bonds holder’s number to use the website and their NS&I number or holder’s number to check via the prize checker app.

Get Premium Bonds prizes faster

Premium Bonds customers that receive any prizes they may win paid via cheque can opt to get them paid more quickly, more easily and more securely by having them paid directly into their bank account or automatically reinvested into more Premium Bonds.

NS&I announced last week that it has ditched plans to scrap Premium Bond prize cheques.
