How to check if you’re a July NS&I Premium Bond winner

If you've won a prize worth between £25 and £100,000, you won't have had Agent Million delivering the good news to you  – here's how to check what you've won. 

The simplest way to check is to go onto the NS&I website and use its prize checker. You will need your Premium Bond holder number and NS&I number to hand. If you're checking for winnings each month, it could be worth downloading NS&I's official prize checker app on your phone (available on Android and iOS).

If you have an Amazon Alexa, you can set the device up to notify you of your winnings too. You will need to download the Alexa app and activate the NS&I Premium Bonds prize checker skill. This is ideal if you've held Premium Bonds for some years, as you can check for prizes since 1986. 

How will my prize be paid? 

Most prizes are either paid into your bank account or reinvested into Premium Bonds, says NS&I. It's worth double-checking that your automatic payments are set up on the NS&I website, to enable payments to come straight into your account.
