Whilst April doesn't bring many changes for Premium Bond holders as the fund rate remains at 4.4% for the second month, NS&I could shake things up as it enters the new tax year with a new net financing target - and it will need to raise £1.5 billion more than last year.

Plus, savers will see NS&I's new British Bond come into play this month. 

Those who won the £1 million jackpot will have had a visit from Agent Million. If you didn't become a millionaire this month, there's still hope as you might have bagged a prize worth between £25 and £100,000.

How to check if you're an April NS&I Premium Bond winner

There are a few ways to check if you've bagged any prizes in the April draw. 

Firstly, you can check on the nsandi.com website by using its prize checker. Or you can download the NS&I prize checker app on your iPhone or Android. 

For both, you will need your NS&I number and Premium Bond holder number close by. 

Those on the hunt for any unclaimed Bonds from previous draws can ask their Alexa device about any prizes sitting idle since July 1968. To do this, you will need to download the Alexa app and activate the NS&I Premium Bonds prize checker skill.  

How are NS&I prizes paid? 

Most Premium Bond prizes are automatically paid into your bank account, but you will need to check that your automatic payments are set up on the NS&I website. Otherwise, your prizes will be reinvested into Premium Bonds.
