You can check from today (3 April) to see if you have scooped any winnings in the latest National Savings & Investment (NS&I) Premium Bonds prize draw. 

This month’s draw saw more than 5.8 million prizes dished out worth just over £452 million. Since the first Premium Bonds draw in June 1957, ERNIE has drawn over 684 million prizes worth £30.5 billion.

Compared to the March prize pot, the number of prizes awarded is similar in April as the fund rate stuck at 4.4% for the second month – down from a historic high of 4.65%. But the odds of winning remain the same, at 21,000 to 1 for every £1 Bond.

While only two Premium Bond holders become millionaires, you could still be one of the million winners holding a prize worth between £25 and £100,000. 

The jackpot winners will receive a visit from Agent Million, but if you have won any other prizes, you can check for any winnings yourself.  

How to check what you’ve won in the April prize draw

The simplest way to check for winnings from the most recent Premium Bonds prize draw is to check via the NS&I website, using its prize checker tool. Or, you can download the NS&I app on Android or iOS. 

You will need your NS&I number and Premium Bond number nearby if you use either of these methods. 

If you’re not a techy person and prefer to pick up the phone, you can call NS&I on 08085 007 007 for free. However, for your account to be recognised over the phone, you need to be registered for online or phone banking with NS&I. 

If you’re searching for unclaimed Bonds from previous draws, there are different ways to check for old winnings that you might have missed. 

How to check for any unclaimed Premium Bonds 

If you moved house recently or if your contact details have changed and you haven’t let NS&I know, you could be sitting on unclaimed Premium Bonds. 

NS&I told MoneyWeek there are currently 2,383,932 Premium Bonds sitting idle worth a whopping £82,521,050 as of 2 April 2024. 

In one of the winning regions, outer London, there are a total of 223,156 unclaimed Bonds worth £7,779,725, where the average unclaimed prize sits at £35. 

Plus, in the Highlands and Islands, the second winning region in April's draw, there are 12,025 unclaimed prizes worth £377,150. 

If you are on the hunt for unclaimed prizes, again you can call NS&I if you’re registered for phone banking, or you can write them a letter. 

If you write a letter, it’s important to include the following information to speed up the process: 

  • Your Premium Bond holder number
  • Your current name
  • Any previous names
  • Your current address
  • Any previous addresses 
  • Your signature

The letter can be sent to: NS&I, Sunderland SR43 2SB.

If you have an Alexa device, you can also ask it for unclaimed Bonds, and it will inform you of any prizes you haven’t claimed since July 1968. For this, you will need to download the Alexa app and activate the NS&I Premium Bonds prize checker skill
