There are two lucky winners of the top £1million prize in the NS&I draw this month, and they are both from outer London.
One of the winners is a woman who had the winning bond 193WA458843 and bought the bond in June 2012.
She currently has £29,700 invested and is the 391st premium bond millionaire.
The second winner is a man with winning bond 247YN655471, which was purchased in June 2015.
The 392nd premium bond millionaire, he has the maximum amount of £50,000 invested.
This is not the first time that two people from the same area have won the jackpot £1million.
Two bond holders from Northern Ireland won £1million each in August 2006, and in January 2016 the jackpot was granted to two lucky people from Leicester.
The most recent case of two people winning £1million from the same area was in July 2016 when two West Sussex residents nabbed the top prize.
Jill Waters, Retail Director at NS&I, said: “The randomness of the Premium Bond draw has struck again as the two jackpot winners are from the same region.
“This is just the fourth time that this has happened, with the last occurrence happening in July 2016.
“Each £1 Bond has an equal chance of winning and each investment, no matter the size, has an opportunity to win a prize.
“However, the more Bonds you own, the more likely you are to win, and one of this month¹s millionaires shows that you don¹t have to the £50,000 maximum invested to win big.”
Despite not winning the top £1million prize, there are seven other winners of high-value prizes across the UK.
One person from Wales has won £100,000 with winning bond 3LC702632 which they bought in September 2001.
Another person in South Scotland has won £50,000 with bond 194AN827670 purchased in June 2012.
There were more than three million prizes awarded this month, however, 90 percent of those were valued at £500 or less.
There were five awards of £100,000, nine awards of £50,000 and 20 awards of £25,000 – so it may be worth checking your account.
There are also 1,5million unclaimed prizes according to NS&I, with a staggering value of over £59million.
Often the reason for the unclaimed winnings is due to changes in personal details not being updated with NS&I.
However, premium bond prizes never expire – so you can claim your prize at any time.
