This is the first month that NS&I dropped the prize fund rate to 4.4% in six months- from a record high of 4.65%. It means fewer prizes were drawn in March compared to February. 

That said, the odds of winning remain the same since September, at 21,000 to 1 for every £1 bond- up from 22,000 to 1 in August. 

The £1million jackpot winners will have received a winner from Agent Million. Even if you didn’t bag the £1million jackpot, you could get a prize worth between £25 to £100,000.

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

If you’re a Premium Bond holder and want to check what you’ve won in the March draw, there are a few ways to tackle this. 

The easiest ways include going onto the website and using its prize checker. Or, you can download the official prize checker app on your iPhone or Android. 

For both methods, keep your Premium Bond Holder number and NS&I number to hand. 

If you’re checking for prizes beyond the March draw, an Alexa device will notify you of any unclaimed bonds you could be sitting on since July 1968. 

NS&I reveal there are currently xxx unclaimed Premium Bonds as of March 2024. 

If you have an Alexa, you will need to download its app and activate the NS&I Premium Bonds prize checker skill.  

How will your NS&I prize be paid? 

NS&I has confirmed that the majority of prizes are paid automatically into your bank account or reinvested into Premium Bonds. 

It’s worth checking on the NS&I website that your automatic payments are set up.
