You purchase these bonds through the organisation and are then entered into a monthly prize draw where you have the opportunity to win between £25 and £1 million tax-free.

In order to enter, you must invest at least £25 and you can keep purchasing Premium Bonds until you reach the maximum holding level of £50,000.

For every £1 that you spend, you will get a unique bond number - so for example, if you pay the minimum fee of £25, you will receive 25 different numbers with the chance to win a prize.
