If you're a Premium Bond holder, you'll no doubt want to know when the draw is announced each month so you 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 third. 

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 changed its approach and now sends them at various 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 a little later than usual.

You'll generally find most sites have received the numbers and published them by 11am at the very 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 day each month to check in and find out if you've won in the latest Premium Bond prize draw.

Unclaimed Premium Bonds: check if you've won a prize already

When will Premium Bond winners be drawn in 2023? 


Prize draw date


Friday 1 September


Monday 2 October


Wednesday 1 November


Friday 1 December

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If your details have been out of date for some time, it's also worth finding out if you have any unclaimed prizes with your name on them.
