The turn of the month means thousands of new winners in the highly anticipated Premium Bonds draw from National Savings and Investments (NS&I). Some lucky winners could be set for a huge £1m windfall.

This year has been a tough one financially for millions in the UK meaning an unexpected windfall would come as a lifeline to those struggling amid the cost of living crisis. Those not lucky enough to scoop the top prize could still win anything ranging from £25 up to a life-changing £100,000.

As described on the Money Saving Expert website, NS&I Premium Bonds are a savings account you can put money into (and take out when you want), where the interest paid is decided by a monthly prize draw.

Bonds were introduced almost 70 years ago in 1956 by Harold Macmillan, who offered everyone an alternate way to save money. All the winnings in the NS&I draw are 100 per cent tax free.

When you purchase bonds through NS&I, you’ll automatically be entered into a monthly draw.

As inflation continues to soar, exacerbating the cost-of-living crisis, it could be the perfect time to hit the jackpot. Here’s all you need to know about the August 2023 premium bonds draw.
