Another month has passed and there have been no changes to Premium Bonds – the prize fund rate still stands at 4.4% and the odds of winning remain at 21,000 to 1 for every bond. 

But NS&I launched new one-year fixed bonds last week in an effort to attract more funds. So, if you’re thinking whether Premium Bonds are still worth it, you should check its savings accounts to see if NS&I offers competitive rates compared to the rest of the market. 

For those who hold Premium Bonds, the jackpot winners will have had a visit from Agent Million. But there are still more than 5.9 million prizes up for grabs, worth between £25 and £100,000.

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

Those lucky enough to bag a prize worth between £25 and £100,000 won’t have received a visit from Agent Million. Here’s how you can check for your winnings. 

You can go onto the NS&I website and use its prize checker. If you’re checking every month, it might be worth downloading NS&I’s official prize checker app on your phone (available on Android and iOS). You will need your Premium Bond Holder number and NS&I number at hand. 

Alternatively, if you have an Amazon Alexa, it can be set up to notify you of your winnings. To do this you will need to download the Alexa app and activate the NS&I Premium Bonds prize checker skill. The great thing about Alexa is you can check for prizes dating back to July 1968.  

How will my prize be paid? 

NS&I says most prizes are automatically paid into your bank account or reinvested into Premium Bonds. To receive payments, you will need to check that the automatic payments setting is set up on the NS&I website.
