People in Suffolk have scooped up nearly £1.1million in prize money in this month's Premium Bonds draw.

Two lucky winners won £100,000 each as part of the February prize. 

Four winners won £50,000 each and three winners have taken £25,000 home with them.

The 399 winners across the county took home £1.098m between them, with one winner taking home £1,000 with only a £1 Premium Bond from 1969.

Andrew Westhead, NS&I retail director, said: "The quickest way to check if you have won a prize is to use our Premium Bonds prize checker app, check online, or even ask Alexa from the second working day of each month onwards.

"New Year is also a good time to check that NS&I has your up-to-date details and to get winnings paid straight into your bank account, so that any of your prizes don't go unclaimed this year."

Unlike other investments, where investors earn interest or a regular dividend income, bonds are entered into a monthly prize draw where people can win between £25 and £1m.
