Your Premium Bonds prizes
The quickest way to find out if you’ve won a prize is to use our prize checker. It’ll show you this month’s prizes, anything you’ve won in the previous six draws, as well as any older prizes that you haven’t claimed yet.
Our prize checker is available online, via our app or enable the Premium Bonds skill on Amazon Alexa and say “Alexa, ask Premium Bonds have I won?”
We update our prize checker on the second working day of every month. Find out how many days until the next prize draw by checking out the countdown online or via the app, or ask our Alexa skill ‘When’s the next prize draw?’
We love to pay out prizes. But sometimes we can’t, which means some prizes are waiting to be claimed by their rightful owner.
You can use our prize checker to find out if you have any unclaimed prizes.

With millions of prizes to pay out each month, it can take us a while to get round to everyone. We announce the two £1 million jackpot winners on the first working day of the month, but it takes us a bit longer to pay everyone else. It also depends on how you’ve asked us to pay your prizes:
My prizes are paid straight into my bank account
Still can’t see the money in your account after the 7th working day of the month? Call us to make sure we’ve got the right bank details.
I receive my prizes by post
From December 2020, we’re stopping prize payments by warrant (like a cheque). We’ll be doing this in phases, so by March 2021 we’ll no longer send any prizes through the post. This means you’ll need to let us know your bank details to carry on receiving any prizes you win. But don’t worry, your prizes are safe with us. We’ll hold onto them until we have your bank details.
Having your prizes paid straight into your bank account is quick, easy and safe. If you win, we’ll let you know the good news by email or text message. You’ll then normally receive your prize money in your bank account by the 7th working day of the month.
