NS&I just announced on Facebook the prize fund is being reduced in November, though they only have a link to the web page with the current rates, so I don't know what it's going down to. I expect it will become clear soon.

Edit: down from 1.4% to 1%. Odds of winning 34,500 to 1 (from 24,500) to 1 https://www.nsandi.com/premium-bonds

2 x £25 from our joint £73K.

Only one more draw at the current rate before the expected return drops by about a third.

We've had our p/bonds for 12 months now......won a total of 40 prizes over 12 months and we're satisfied with the return.

The odd thing about my winnings is that 3 of the 4 bonds that came through were only eligible for the draw this month thus reinforcing my suspicion that newly bought bonds stand a better chance of winnings even though NS&I say otherwise.
