The new Croydon-based millionaire holds £25,000 in premium bonds and purchased their winning bond 503VL397852 in June 2022 - just a mere 10 months ago. 

Other premium bond holders could still have a chance of winning prizes starting from £25 up to £100,000.

NS&I retail director Jill Waters said: “One of this month’s winners has won £1 million with Premium Bonds after just ten months, whilst the other waited nearly ten years to hit the jackpot. This just goes to show that, whether it is months or years, customers up and down the country can win big and feel the magic of Premium Bonds.”
