Premium Bonds winners announced for March prize draw

This month’s two £1million jackpot winners in NS&I’s monthly Premium Bonds prize draw are from Nottinghamshire and from Oxfordshire. There are always two £1million top prizes in the Premium Bonds prize draw along with other top prizes of £100,000 and £50,000.

The first £1million winner in the March prize draw is from Nottinghamshire and holds the winning Bond 417YB876187, which is worth £15,000. They have £50,000 in Bonds in total.

The second winning Bond for the jackpot is 319WC638508 and belongs to a person in Oxfordshire, which is worth £15,000. They hold £30,284 in Bonds in total.

Britons can check if they have won a prize using the prize checker tool on the NS&I website or via the app or using an Alexa-enabled device.

The prize fund rate has increased to 3.3 percent from the March 2023 draw with £15million in prizes added to the fund.

Winners are usually notified if they have won a prize but the message may not get through if a person has changed their contact details or address.

One lucky person from Central Bedfordshire who only has £6,100 in total Bonds won £100,000, for a winning Bond worth just £400, which they purchase in July 2021.

Another winner from Lancashire got £100,000 for a winning Bond worth just £100 wich they bought in August 2001, and they only had £9,150 in total Bonds.

One individual from West Sussex won £50,000 for a winning Bond worth just £25, which they purchased in May 2021.

Financial journalist Martin Lewis previously explained a person with “typical luck” would need at least £1,000 in Premium Bonds to win.

But as each £1 Bond has an equal chance of winning in the monthly draw any saver has a chance of bagging a big cash prize.

A person can also use the prize checker to see if they have any unclaimed winnings from previous draws.
