The odds of winning changed several months ago, on November 24 last year, coming into force for the December 2020

 Premium Bonds prize draw. This was due to a cut to the annual prize fund rate.

This did stand at 1.4 percent, reducing to one percent.

It meant the odds of winning in the Premium Bonds prize draw dropped.

Formerly, this was 24,500 to one for every £1 Bond, and it is now 34,500 to one per £1 Bond number.
