Have your Premium Bonds numbers been drawn this July?

Written by:
Two lucky Premium Bonds holders have scooped the life-changing £1m jackpot. Is it you?

The first winner is from inner London and had their number – 210ST236184 – picked in this month’s draw.

They hold £30,300 in Premium Bonds and bought the winning number in August 2013.

This makes them the seventh millionaire from the area.

Meanwhile, the second jackpot winner lives in Surrey and saw their number – 471RR305957 – picked at random in July’s draw.

They held £22,350 in Premium Bonds and bought the winning number just in September 2021. This win makes them the 28th Premiums Bonds millionaire from Surrey.

While the millionaire winners are notified on the first working day of the month, for everyone else, you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out if you’re one of the 4.8 million Premium Bonds winners. There were 118.5 billion numbers eligible for the draw with prizes worth £138m this month.

To check if you’ve won between £25 and £100,000 in the July draw, see the NS&I prize checker, the prize checker app or via an Alexa-enabled device from Saturday 2 July.

You’ll need your Premium Bonds holder number to check, and you can also see if you have any unclaimed prizes.

Since the first draw in June 1957, ERNIE (Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment) has drawn 572 million prizes worth £23bn. The current annual Premium Bonds prize fund rate is 1.4%.

Ian Ackerley, NS&I chief executive, said: “Congratulations to our July jackpot winners. We hope they enjoy this life-changing amount of money.

“One of our winners waited around nine years to win the jackpot prize, showing that good things really do come to those who wait.”
