How to check if you’re a February NS&I Premium Bond winner
You can check from 2 February to see if you have won a prize between £25 and £100,000.
There are several ways you can check what you’ve won in February’s prize draw.
One of the easiest ways is to go online to nsandi.com and use the NS&I prize checker. Similarly, you can download the official prize checker app on your phone, available on Android or iOS. For both, you will need your Premium Bond holder’s number and NS&I number on standby.
You can also set up your Amazon Alexa to notify you what you won in the latest prize draw. It will also give information about how much you have won and any details regarding upcoming draws.
Alexa can also tell you about any unclaimed Premium Bond prizes you have won 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 will my NS&I prize be paid?
NS&I says that most prizes are paid automatically into your bank account, or reinvested into Premium Bonds. You can go onto the NS&I website and check that your automatic payments are set up.
