    Yes I always check mine online and just did but not on yet.

    I wonder when the 1st is on a Sun or BH that they do it on next working day?

    If you win the million then agent M1 comes to tell you personally.

    Every 1st of the month I get excited by anyone who knocks at my door :D:D

    No I have had maximum holding in the past and never won more than £50. I still have a large amount as with the interest rates being so low I feel there is always a chance and the capital is safe but I'm lucky if I win £25 a month.

    yes, if 1st falls on a Sunday or bank holiday the draw is done on the next working day it then takes the smaller prizes a few days to filter down. Would be nice to get the knock on the door :D

    The most I have won with one bond is £100.

    I hate that they dropped the smallest prize from £50 to £25 too.

    The odds are really really bad but some-one has to scoop the million prize every month.
     
  10. I have had two £25 pound wins since July lat year! if I don't get anything better by the end of july this year I am going to draw the money out and SPEND SPEND SPEND! May even go to vegas with it!
     
  11. And in this day and age why the hell NSI cannot get the winning numbers up on the first of each month is beyond me!

    my parents got me premium bonds when I was born (about £100 I think) and to this day I have not won a thing. 26 years and no win - bad luck or what?!

    I hold the maximum amount allowed but have only ever won small amounts, up to £100. I do usually get wins every month though. The stake was from my late Mother's estate, I am not really rich. LOL.
