The annual Premium Bonds prize fund rate is currently set at 1.35% and the odds of each individual Bond number winning a prize are 26,000 to 1. The chances of all bonds winning are the same, regardless of when or where they were bought.

There isn't a time limit for collecting Premium Bond prizes and those who hold Premium Bonds can reduce their chances of having unclaimed prizes by opting to have prizes paid directly into their bank acounts.
