Are you an April Premium Bonds winner?

Premium Bonds holders will be able to check if they’ve won an amount between £25 and £100,000 via the prize checker and prize checker app from Thursday 2 April.

During the coronavirus situation, NS&I is urging customers not to call to check if they have won as it’s dealing with customers who don’t have online access or have an urgent matter to discuss.

If you’ve previously chosen to have prizes paid into your bank account, or have prizes reinvested, you will receive an email or text message to inform you if you have won. You can then visit the online prize checker at or view the NS&I prize checker app to see the value of your prize.
