The first £1m winner is a man from Inner London, holding bond number 398WP403111. The bond is part of a £50,000 holding and was purchased in June 2020. The win makes the man the sixth £1m Premium Bonds jackpot winner from Inner London.
The second £1m winner is a man from North Yorkshire, holding bond number 304HM348661. He holds £50,000 in Premium Bonds and the winning bond was purchased in June 2017. The man becomes the third Premium Bonds millionaire from North Yorkshire.
The way Premium Bonds prizes are paid is changing from Spring 2021 when NS&I will begin to phase out the use of Premium Bonds prize cheques.
Instead, Premium Bonds customers can 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.
There are several ways that Premium Bonds customers can provide NS&I with their bank account details.
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.
Customers who are not registered can use NS&I’s new prize options service. The new service consists of a secure three-stage process. Customers can visit www.nsandi.com/prize-options 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.
Customers 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).
Customers who opt to use this service will need either an email address or a mobile phone number so that NS&I can notify them of any prize win by either text message or email.
Checking Premium Bonds prizes
Customers can check to see if they have won on the nsandi.com prize checker, prize checker app, or via their Alexa-enabled device from 2 February 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 app.
In the February 2021 prize draw, a total of 2,960,195 prizes worth £85,105,550 will be paid out.
