Help For Heroes – Tidy Bingo’s 5th Donation

Posted by on: Wednesday, Aug. 3rd 2016 12:18 PM

On July 5th we made our 5th donation to Help for Heroes, taking the total amount donated at that point to an impressive £2,868.90! As is always the case when we make a donation, we received a letter thanking us just a few days later.

The letter thanks us for the donation and tells of his it is put to use supporting wounded soldiers and their families. If you read on, you will see a scanned copy of the letter.

Tidy Cupboard – Changes Afoot

Posted by on: Friday, Jul. 1st 2016 12:36 AM

As you will all know, for some time now we have seen a drop in the number of players in the Tidy Cupboard. This has continued for a while now and David and I have made a decision to change things around a little.

Rather than lose the room completely, something we don’t want to do, we’re going to try and revive it. How we plan to do that may sound a little odd but there is a method in our madness. However, it does mean that from 1st August 2016 the Cupboard is only to be open on the 1st Tuesday of every month.

Loyalty Rewarded At Tidy Bingo

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 2:47 PM

As regulars at Tidy Bingo will know, the network offers a loyalty reward scheme that sees you earn extra bonuses, cash back etc. as you rise through the ranks. As a little something extra, we’re going to introduce a form of loyalty scheme into the Tidy Cupboard too.

As you will have noticed, player numbers have been dropping of late in the Cupboard and as such, it doesn’t remain viable to keep giving away as many loyalty points as we have been whilst player numbers diminish.

Tidy Bingo Up For Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site

Posted by on: Monday, Apr. 4th 2016 1:23 PM

The Which Bingo Award shortlist has been announced today and once again Tidy Bingo has received a nomination. This year there isn’t a Best Boutique Bingo Site, the category we usually find ourselves in. For 2016, we have been nominated as Best Jumpman Gaming Bingo Site and for the first time since we launched, we’re going to put a bit of effort into winning.

It’s not that we don’t want to win, of course it isn’t, but we are always competing with brands we have bigger budgets and more players so it often feels like we are a non-starter. This year however, only five of the brands under the Jumpman Gaming hat have been nominated so our odds of winning are slightly better!

Catchphrase Competition – March 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Feb. 25th 2016 1:29 PM

Can you believe it’s nearly March already? It seems like only yesterday that we were running Christmas competitions and rummaging in Santa’s Sack! Anyway, as the year rolls on, it’s time for another Catchphrase competition and your chance to win a selection of Tidy branded goods, maybe some Help For Heroes bits and bobs and even some bonus funds!

This time we’re going to do things a little differently (not much) and will be sending the competition by internal mail, external mail and posting on Facebook. We’re hoping this gets more people involved and who knows, with enough entries – we might even throw in a few extra prizes!

Ham And Egg Cups

Posted by on: Sunday, Jan. 24th 2016 5:36 PM

As some of you may know, I’m currently with Slimming World trying to shed a few stone. If you’ve never done this diet before then it’s worth knowing that foods are divided into categories and it is actually the only diet that I have done that I have found really easy to stick to. The only thing that I am not completely comfortable with is the weekly meetings, and whilst I know many get a lot from the meetings – they don’t really do it for me. If any of you guys want to slim along with me – feel free. I lost 6.5lbs in my first week….

That said, I have paid for 10 sessions, so I will do those and then probably just continue alone at home. Anyway, I digress, the reason for this blog post was to share one of the recipes that I made today, one that I really enjoyed and takes hardly any time to make. It’s a free food, so you can eat as many of these as you want.

Free Jackpot Game – The Outcome

Posted by on: Saturday, Jan. 23rd 2016 9:50 PM

I thought that I’d sit in the room and watch our biggest every free game take place tonight, the big £1000 jackpot. I wanted to see who were winners, and of course, report the outcome to all the Tidy Bingo players who were otherwise engaged.

In total there were a whopping 4,437 when the game got underway and I was on tenterhooks (as I am sure the players in the room were too).

Thank You, Thank You And Again, Thank You

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 7:38 PM

There are many things that I love about Tidy and for those of you that know me, you’ll know that it has always been a dream of mine to run my own bingo site. From player, to host, from host to writer and then writer to site owner, it took me ten years to get here but I did.

There have been ups and downs, as our blog readers know, but one of the biggest ups happened this week. Quietly beavering away in my office, the doorbell rings with a delivery…..

XFactor 10th Series Changes

Friday, Aug. 30th 2013 1:06 PM

The 10th series of the XFactor kicks off this Saturday and I for one can’t wait! I love watching the auditions but this series sees a few changes to how the whole process works. Not only is Tulisa no longer on the panel and Sharon Osbourne is back but the audition process is now in two stages.

Previously acts had to audition live and then three ‘yes’ votes meant that they were through to boot camp, for this series of the X Factor this is not the case. The first audition sees the contestants back in the intimate audition room rather than on the live stage. If they get the votes required then they have to perform to the judges again in the arena to prove that they can also impress and audience. It is only then, with the right number of ‘yes’ votes that they will be able to go to boot camp.

Community Jackpot Win For Tidy Bingo Player

Tuesday, Aug. 27th 2013 2:36 PM

As many of our readers will know when a site is part of a network you are playing against players from many different brands. For Tidy Bingo the 15 Network isn’t quite as large as others online today but it was still great to read the results of our first Community Jackpot game and find that one of our own took a share of the big prize money.

Of course with TG prizes on offer at Tidy Bingo last night too, it could have been that some other players too a share of the bounty too. We are referring to a share of the main prize pool of which ‘shaz1971’ took the one line prize of £250!

Tidy Live Whilst I’m On Holiday!

Friday, Aug. 23rd 2013 10:25 PM

It’s not very often that I pack my suitcase leaving all tablets, phones and laptops at home and jet off for a holiday but last week I had the chance to do just that. My youngest, who is 15, was off to stay with her Dad before his upcoming wedding and the two eldest don’t live at home anyway so it seemed the ideal opportunity to take some time our with the other half. My poor old hubby is a bit of a bingo widower so we booked a city break to Amsterdam.

There aren’t many places in the world that are on my list of places to visit but Amsterdam was always near the top. Friends have been and always came home talking about the canals, the buildings, the red light district and of course, the coffee shops.

The Other Half

Thursday, Aug. 15th 2013 12:29 PM

Nickie has already introduced herself, so now it’s my turn! I use the term ‘the other half’ in a business sense, we’ve been working together now for a good few years, covering the world of both on and offline bingo. I’m a father of two, and have been involved in bingo since I was 18 years old, first as a bingo caller, then as a player, and now as a commentator / webmaster on the game.

I come from a family of bingo players, who attend on a regular basis – the game is a great way of meeting people. If you play online the same applies, it can be a fun way to spend a bit of time, talking to other players in chat and hopefully having the odd win too. I still go for a game at a number of clubs, when I get the chance – which is not as often as I’d like. And I also play online too. Coupled with my knowledge of working in a bingo club and Nickie’s time as a chat host, I’d like to think our experiences and knowledge will help to make Tidy a great place to play.

Tidy Bingo Is OPEN!

Thursday, Aug. 15th 2013 12:06 PM

Finally! After months of preparation we have finally opened the doors of Tidy Bingo but we can’t relax yet, there are still a few minor tweaks but perfection doesn’t happen overnight right?

We thought that our first blog post should tell you a little about us, who we are and what our plans are for Tidy. We – he is David Lloyd and I am Nickie Shute – together are the brains behind the outfit. I’d like to say brains and brawn but sadly neither of us are going to win a modelling contract anytime soon!

Tidy – What’s In The Name

Thursday, Aug. 15th 2013 12:05 PM

One of the things that you might be wondering is why we chose the name Tidy Bingo. There is no one answer to the question because both David and I have different views. For me, when David suggested the name, I instantly thought of Keith Lemon and his phrase ‘Bang Tidy’. For David Tidy is something completely different and if you are a Gavin and Stacey fan then you will get his reasoning for the brand name….

David is Welsh and in Wales the term Tidy is used to describe something, someone or a situation that is pleasing.
