Six customers have won £1,000 twice in the last four years.
Raymond Sutton, 60, from Penwortham near Preston won £300,000 in the February Superdraw. He said: “We feel incredibly lucky that thanks to the Halifax Savers Prize Draw we have been able to secure the financial future of our family. We’ve been able to help our daughter with her mortgage, do some work on our house, and book a few holidays. I can remember when I signed up for the Halifax Savers Prize Draw but never imagined then that we’d have such a life-changing win.”

To be eligible for the draw, Halifax customers are required to have a savings balance of £5,000 or more in qualifying Halifax and/or Bank of Scotland savings accounts for the whole calendar month before each draw.
