  3. Claim Your Prize: If your Prize Bond wins, you can claim it by visiting a designated bank or branch. There are different procedures for claiming prizes depending on the amount won. You are not required to visit the State Bank of Pakistan, Banking Services Corporation in case of Premium Prize Bond, as the amount is automatically credited to the winner’s bank account.
