This month’s £1m Premium Bonds jackpot winners come from Leicester and Cleveland.

The first £1m prize goes to the holder of bond number 404XK887196 – a woman from Leicester. The woman purchased her winning bond in July 2020 and she holds the maximum £50,000 in Premium Bonds. The win means that the woman is the third Premium Bonds jackpot winner from Leicester.

The second bond number drawn was 147TV114992. This belongs to a woman from Cleveland. The woman holds a total of £41,450 in Premium Bonds and purchased her winning bond in November 2008. The win makes the woman the second Premium Bonds jackpot winner from Cleveland.

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 Wednesday 2 June 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.

June 2021 prize draw breakdown

In the June 2021 prize draw, a total of 3,167,726 prizes worth £91,072,050 will be paid out. There were 109,286,459,348 bond numbers eligible for the draw.

Since the first draw in June 1957, ERNIE has drawn 525.7 million prizes with a total value of £21.8bn.

Changing payments

The way that Premium Bonds prizes are paid is changing at the moment, with National Savings & Investments (NS&I) phasing out the use of Premium Bonds prize cheques.

Premium Bonds customers can instead arrange to have any prizes they win paid directly into their bank account or automatically reinvested into more Premium Bonds up to the maximum limit of £50,000.

Bondholders can provide their bank details in several ways ‒ those already registered for NS&I’s online and phone services can input their bank account details by logging into their account on NS&I’s website, for example.

Meanwhile those who are not registered can use NS&I’s new prize options service. Customers can visit to input their bank account details and should have their Premium Bonds holder’s number to hand, which they can find on their bond record.

Bondholders should enter their UK bank account details and can choose to have prizes paid directly into their bank account or reinvested into more Premium Bonds (up to the maximum £50,000).

If you opt to use this service, you’ll need to supply either an email address or a mobile number so that NS&I can notify you of any prize wins.
