A Premium Bond holder from Hertfordshire and another from Kent are in line for a £1m windfall.

They represent the 411th and 412th Premium Bonds millionaires.

The winner from Kent had only £4,210 invested in Premium Bonds, which shows that you don’t need to have the maximum value (£50,000) invested in order to win the top prize. The winning bond number is 045BC552141 – and was purchased in November 2000.

Kent appears to be somewhat of a hotbed for Premium Bonds winners in recent times – with the third jackpot win in as many months.

Meanwhile, the winner from Hertfordshire had £50,000 invested in Premium Bonds and the winning number of 292PB399962.

Jill Waters, National Savings & Investments (NS&I) retail director, said: “Alongside the two jackpot prizes, we have paid out an additional 3.3 million tax-free prizes this month, ranging from £25 to £100,000, and we hope to help those investing in Premium Bonds to create a savings habit that will benefit them now and in the future.”

Are you a secret millionaire?

NS&I noted there are more than 1.5 million prizes, worth more than £61m, which remain unclaimed. This can happen if NS&I don’t have an up-to-date address for a winner.

Bond holders can make sure their details are up-to-date and choose to have any future prizes paid directly into their bank account by registering to their Premium Bonds and NS&I accounts online. This helps to reduce the likelihood of prizes being unclaimed.

For example, there are currently 40,623 unclaimed prizes worth just over £1.5m in Kent. One person has a £50,000 prize won in November 2007 that remains unclaimed. They had £128 invested and the bond number is 3VT019901.
