So what are the chances of winning?

It goes without saying that there is no sure-fire way to guarantee investment success, but the Windfall Bond plays its role in giving you the opportunity to be rewarded for saving. The breakdown of prizes ensures that each bond has 13 opportunities to win a prize each month - 156 over the course of a year: the more you hold, the greater chances of winning. Of course, should you only hold one bond, your chance of landing a windfall will be reduced but, with odds at 64/1 of winning over a 12 month period, the opportunity to be named one of the lucky few is tantalising.

How is the number of winners determined each month?

So that the odds of winning are constant and known in advance there are always 10,000 tickets in each monthly free prize draw.

Each eligible Windfall Bond is allocated a ticket in the monthly draw. Every month 13 ticket numbers are drawn at random by an independent third party and these are the winning tickets. Whilst we build up to 10,000 participating bonds there will be winning tickets which have not been allocated to a bond and the prizes for these are not awarded.

This structure means that, unlike a raffle, the odds of winning stay the same and do not change based on the number of bonds participating.

As the number of eligible bonds builds up the number of winners each month will increase. More detail on this can be found in the Free Draw Rules, rule 9 being the most relevant.
