Premium Bonds are seen as one way to potentially win big, while keeping money safe and secure with NS&I, formally known as the National Savings and Investment company. Each month, NS&I announces a whole raft of prize winners, but many will be asking themselves ‘Have I won in the March 2021 prize draw?’ Britons will be keeping their eyes peeled today, particularly for the £1million jackpot, which two people secure each month.
Overall, though, the lucky millionaire had a holding of £40,002 in Premium Bonds.
The winning bond can be identified as the number 307PX582004.
However, if a person was not fortunate enough to become a millionaire on this occasion, they may find they have still won a substantial sum.
This is because there are other high value winners who have managed to clinch a prize which is worth checking today.
In March 2021, five lucky Britons from across the country have won £100,000.
These winners were revealed to be from East Sussex, Inner London, Lancashire, Outer London and Tyne and Wear.
One Bond holder even had a small Bond value of £250 which was the one which secured them the huge payout.
Some nine people have also won a payout of £50,000 from their NS&I Premium Bonds this month.
These individuals are from Bromley, Cardiff, Lancashire, Inner London, the Highlands and Islands, Derbyshire, North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
The dates of purchase among winners of these top three prizes range from May 1997 to just a year ago in March 2020.
In total, NS&I revealed the prize fund for Premium Bonds to be worth some £86million.
The number of prizes handed out to lucky Britons this year totalled over three million.
On Premium Bonds, prizes range from the minimum of £25, right up to the two £1million jackpot payouts.
NS&I is a particularly trusted name in banking, as it is backed by HM Treasury.
This means 100 percent of the savings a person chooses to invest with NS&I is secure should the worst happen.
This is unlike other familiar providers who often only guarantee savings up to a value of £85,000.
