The very first person to win a £1 million Premium Bonds prize in April 1994 was from Surrey.

At the time there was one prize of £1 million, and in August 2005 the second prize of £1 million was added to the draw.

  • In July 2004, £1 million was won by someone in Newham who had £17 in his possession, the lowest amount ever won on the jackpot. They had bought their bonds in February 1959 and this is also the longest time before they hit the jackpot.
  • The shortest time between starting to invest in Premium Bonds and winning the £1 million jackpot is two months.
  • In the very first Premium Bonds draw in 1957, the jackpot was £1,000. Since then, more than £30 billion has been paid out in prizes of all sizes.
  • The youngest jackpot winner at the time was just three years old and the oldest winner to date was 98.

In April 2009 it went back to one jackpot in the prize draw, but in August 2014 this was increased again to two.

The Premium Bonds Prize Draw was launched in 1957 and since then more than £30 billion in prizes have been won by Premium Bonds holders.

Andrew Westhead, NS&I retail director, said: ‘Celebrating the 30th anniversary of the £1m Premium Bonds jackpot is testament to the love the country has for this iconic way of saving, with more than £30bn worth prizes of all shapes and sizes paid out since launch. The trek started in 1957.

‘A big congratulations to our 528 £1 million jackpot winners over the last 30 years.’

One of NS&I’s five Agent Millions, delivering the good news to the winners, said: ‘Premium Bonds are often people’s hard-earned savings and they invest with us because they trust us.

‘I love my job, I would do it every day if I could, it is such an honor and a privilege. I get as much pleasure and satisfaction from delivering the news as the winners receive the news.”
