National Savings and Investments (NS&I) has announced the August winners of Premium Bonds, and those in Newcastle could be in for some good news.
NS&I has unveiled two UK winners of the £1,000,000 grand prize - one in Dorset and the other in Buckinghamshire.
Meanwhile 17 winners in August have been from Northumberland.
Here’s what you need to know about the August Premium Bond winners and how to check if you’re one too.
What is a Premium Bond and how do I enter the prize draw?
Premium Bonds are an NS&I-issued investment product that offer the possibility to earn interest or a regular dividend income.
These bonds are acquired through the organisation and are then entered into a monthly prize draw which gives a chance of winning between £25 and £1 million tax-free.
To participate, you must spend a minimum of £25, and you can continue to purchase Premium Bonds until you reach the £50,000 maximum holding amount.
For every £1 you spend, you will obtain a unique bond number; therefore, if you pay the minimum charge of £25, you will receive 25 unique numbers with the opportunity to win a prize.
To acquire Premium Bonds, visit the NS&I website.
