Premium Bonds prize dates: when are the winning numbers drawn?

Updated on 14 October 2020 | 0 Comments

We've put together a full list of dates when Premium Bonds winning numbers are drawn each month for the rest of 2020 and 2021.

If you're a Premium Bond holder, you'll no doubt want to know when the draw is held each month so can find out if you've won as soon as possible. 

The latest big prize Premium Bond winners are published on the first working day of the month so, at the very latest, they'll be available by the fourth (if there is a bank holiday). 

While NS&I used to give media outlets the numbers the day before so we could have them ready for you first thing on the morning of the announcement, it has changed this and now sends them at varying times on the actual morning of the announcement. 

This is why you'll notice most organisations, us included, are publishing each month's big winners later than usual.

You'll generally find most sites have received the numbers and published them by midday at the latest if you wanted to make a note to check in then (you can find our article here). 

Speaking of making a note, take a look at our handy list of future Premium Bond prize draw dates below so you know which days to check in.

Will I be contacted if I've won?

There is, however, one exception to the dates above.

If you overcome the staggering odds and bag one of the two £1 million monthly prizes, you can expect a visit from someone at NS&I the day before the first working day of the month. 

So, make sure you keep your details up to date. If you've recently moved, you can find out more about changing your address on this part of the NS&I site.

If your details have been out of date for some time, it's also worth finding it if you have any unclaimed prizes with your name on it.
