Premium Bonds: Were you a winner in the November 2022 draw?

File photo dated 01/06/07 of a Premium Bonds from the first ever draw on the 50th anniversary of the first Premium Bond prize draw . An extra �1.5 billion worth of Premium Bonds were snapped up in April as savings rates were tumbling, according to analysis. MoneySavingExpert.com, which carried out the research, said it was the highest number of bonds bought in one month since December 2006. At that time, a special 50th anniversary draw with five �1 million pound winners attracted just over �2 billion worth of bonds.

Were you one of the lucky winners in November's National Savings and Investments (NS&I) Premium Bonds draw? Once again, two lucky players won £1m each this month.

The first winning bond number drawn was 460WE462342 and belongs to a winner in Hertfordshire. The jackpot winner holds £15,000 in Premium Bonds and purchased the winning bond in June 2021. The win makes them the fifteenth jackpot winner from Hertfordshire.

The second winning bond number drawn was 245PK699534 and the winner comes from Essex. The winner holds £25,253 in Premium Bonds and purchased their winning bond in May 2015. They are the twentieth Premium Bonds millionaire from Essex.

For the November 2022 draw, NS&I paid out almost 5 million prizes of more than £218m in value.

The total paid out by NS&I in the 65 years since the first draw in July 1957 now stands at £23.9bn, from 592 million prizes.

Jill Waters, NS&I retail director, said: “Premium Bonds are a fun way to start saving – customers are in with the chance of winning any one of our more than 4.9 million prizes. Their wins could be life changing, as we’ve seen with our two winners in Hertfordshire and Essex. People up and down the country can start their Premium Bonds journey with an initial investment of just £25.”

As well as the two £1m bonds, there are 18 winners of £100,000, 36 of £50,000, 71 of £25,000, 178 worth £10,000 and 358 with a £5,000 prize.

The chances of all bonds winning are the same, regardless of when or where they were bought.

Even if you did not get a winning ticket, be sure to check any unclaimed prizes. In Outer London, there are 246,510 unclaimed prizes worth £8,613,300. The largest unclaimed prize is £100,000 and is from the February 2007 prize draw. The oldest unclaimed prize in Outer London is from November 1961 and is worth £25.

In Suffolk, there are 22,656 unclaimed prizes with a total value of £725,300. £1,000 is the largest unclaimed prize in Suffolk and there are nine of these that were won between the May 1986 and December 2020 prize draw. The oldest unclaimed prize is from May 1967 and is worth £25.

Prizes do not expire, meaning you can claim as far back as the original 1957 draw. Premium Bonds holders can reduce the chances of their prizes becoming unclaimed by managing their Premium Bonds online or opting to have any prizes paid directly into their bank accounts by BACS, with notification by email.

Customers can check the Premium Bonds prize checker on the NS&I website or download the app to see if they have won.
