Every month a couple of people bag a million pounds in the Premium Bonds draw but while you’ll have memorised your birthday and probably the date of Christmas and Boxing Day, do you know when Premium Bonds Prize Day falls – the date the winning numbers are announced? 

First of every month, you might say, but that’s not the whole story.

The lucky Premium Bonds numbers from £1,000 up to £1million are published on the first working day of the month. That means if the first is a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday you have to wait up to three days to learn of any good news. 

Since the turn of the century, This is Money’s Premium Bonds Winning Numbers tables have been published on that first working day – a whole day before NS&I (previously National Savings and Investments) updates its own Premium Bond Prize Checker. And with the well-document problems bond holders have reported when trying to access their NS&I accounts this year, savers are turning to us in their droves.

As an added bonus, our tables are interactive, allowing you to filter by location, the value of your holding, the date of purchase and of course, the amount you’ve won – without the need to know your bond holder number. 

Have you won a prize: Use This is Money’s Premium Bond winners tables to filter by region, size of holding, value of the winning bond, purchase date and the prize amount. This screenshot is filtered by the date the winning bond was bought – a popular criteria among bonds fans. 

Premium Bonds are a tax-free Government-backed savings scheme that allows savers to pit up to 50,000 bonds against a digital random prize picker called Ernie – Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment.  Each bond costs £1 and entitles the owner one entry in the draw. The maximum holding is £50,000. 

Prizes range from £25 up to £1million. 

Winner: Britney Spears was top of the UK singles chart when the Premium Bond fund rate last reached the giddy heights of 4.65%.

Winners of the two monthly jackpots are apparently told of their good fortune in person but there is very little evidence of this. 

As of August 2023, the prize fund rate, the amount of the total fund paid out in prizes, hit 4.65%, the highest it’s been since March 1999 when Britney Spears topped the UK singles chart with worldwide smash hit Baby One More Time. 

Odds of winning a prize are now 21,000 to 1.

Here are the dates of the prize draw announcements for the coming year.
