Two lucky people in the UK have scooped the top prizes of £1 million for October.
A man from Dorset was successful after he used his winnings from a previous prize draw.
After winning £25 in May 2010, he put the money into new bonds.
Now his numbers have come up once more (Bond number: 173HT264915).
NS&I savings director Jill Waters said: “Re-investing Premium Bond prizes can be a great way of saving and it has paid off this month for Dorset’s jackpot winner, scooping the £1
million jackpot from a £25 invested prize.”
Another winner in London bought his ticket in February 2016 (Bond number: 267FW537456).
His winning ticket was part of his £50,000 investment into the Premium Bonds scheme.

What are Premium Bonds?
Premium Bonds are a savings account you can put money into and take out whenever you want.
Any interest paid is then decided by a prize draw every month.
People buy £1 bonds which each have an equal chance of winning, so it’s better to buy more in order to have more of a chance of winning.
Winners are picked by a random number generating computer called Ernie (Electronic Random Number Indicator Equipment).
The prize money represents the amount that would be paid in interest if premium bonds were regular government bonds.
