The Premium Bonds prize draw results are announced at the beginning of each month. Yesterday was no different, with National Savings and Investments (NS&I) sharing some details about the high value winners on its website.
- Premium Bonds: June 2020 winners announced
Among them were two people selected for payouts of £1million.
These jackpot winners come from Nottingham and Stoke on Trent, with the latter winner having bought the winning Bond in February this year.
Some may want to check to see if they have won on the NS&I prize checker.
This can be accessed on the NS&I website and on the prize checker app from Tuesday June 2, 2020.
In order to use the website and the app, customers will require their Premium Bonds holder’s number.
Customers who have chosen for prizes to be paid to their bank account, or to have their prizes reinvested, will be informed whether they have won by email or text message, NS&I said.
They can check the online prize checker on the NS&I website or on the prize checker app to see the value of their prize.
Meanwhile, those who receive warrants, like a cheque, will be notified of any wins via the post.
People can arrange to get future prizes paid directly into their bank account if they are registered for NS&I’s online service and they have an email address or mobile phone number.
Customers should visit nsandi.com and click ‘Log in’, go to ’Your profile’ and select ‘Your prize options’, NS&I said.
NS&I Premium Bonds prize warrants are valid for three months.
However, the warrants may still be accepted at a later date by the bank – up to six months.

Should a person have a problem at that time and the bank won’t accept the warrant, then NS&I can send the winner a new warrant.
New customers who are buying Premium Bonds for the first time are directed to do so online at the NS&I website.
Existing customers looking to increase the size of their holding in Premium Bonds can do so by bank transfer, and they do not need to be registered for the online and telephone banking service.
Jill Waters, NS&I’s Retail Director, said: “We are currently asking new and existing customers to do everything they can with NS&I online.
“Customers who invest with NS&I online will be automatically registered so that they can manage their savings online or by phone.
“This will allow them to check their balances, pay money in or take it out, choose to have any Premium Bonds prizes paid directly into their bank account and also to transfer money between their NS&I accounts.
“For any customer wishing to invest into an existing NS&I account, the quickest way to do this is to make a transfer from their bank account or to set up a standing order.
“Customers can invest into all of our on sale products using this method.”
