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…..

Bingo And Romance – What’s The Connection?

Posted by on: Friday, Sep. 20th 2013 7:43 AM

In my time in the bingo industry I have written A LOT of content about the game; from promotions, to idiot guides to just sharing my opinions with anyone who reads my content. Along the way I have met some fabulous people, far too many to mention but if they are reading this then they will know who they are. My journey now continues with Tidy Bingo and all of you and I wanted to share an article that I was once asked to write…

We all know that sex sells but in an industry where the biggest demographic is women, is this true? Ann Summers Bingo, who remembers that site? We all know the name and what Ann Summers is about, but the bingo brand is no longer, it closed despite having some rather ‘near the knuckle’ bingo calls like ‘Dinner for two – 69’ and giving away Rabbits (and not the furry kind) as promotional prizes!

Wink Bingo used the Dream Idols as a tool to try and attract players, as did Boyle Bingo before them. Foxy Bingo opted for the Dream Boys but where are they all now? Where the promotions repeated? The answer is no.

However, once upon a time I wrote an article called ‘Daddy or Chips, Bingo or Sex?’ and I looked at how similar choices were made and similar aspects considered when choosing a man (or woman) or a bingo site. Here’s just some of the best bits (in my opinion) of my train of thought but be warned, it can be a bit risqué…

First Impressions / Attraction

When you land at a bingo site often the home page is what keeps you on the page or sends you reaching for the back button quickly. The same can be said about men/women. Whilst we would all like to think we aren’t that shallow, if we are completely honest with ourselves a lot of emphasis is put on whether we are physically attracted to the person.

A Keeper?

What do we look for from a bingo site when we have decided that the aesthetics work for us? I can only speak from personal choice but I like to look at how the financials add up – what’s the first deposit bonus? Are there reload bonuses? What rewards are there for staying loyal to a brand?

Making the comparison to a potential partner, isn’t that something we also look for? Obviously it’s not about how much money is in the bank but whether they can support themselves financially and treat us too!

Refer A Friend

Sorry to be so blatantly sexist to the guys and there is no offence intended but for men, often they don’t need to look further than the home page (face) in the first instant – if it’s got all the right attributes then it might be good for a quick go if you get my drift. However, even men sometimes think long term and whilst everything may look good on the outside, if there is nothing of substance to back it up, you are not going to want to think long term or taking home to meet your Mum. Or in the case of bingo, referring your friends to the site!

The Naughty Bits

Again, I can only speak from personal experience and preference but when it comes to the bedroom I’m a little fickle. Sometimes I like to take things slow and other times it’s about scratching an itch. Sometimes I have no control over the speed especially if the prowess of the other half has been impaired by alcohol or for some men (not my husband) the dreaded PE plays a part.

The same happens in bingo doesn’t it? Some days a small deposit can last for hours with Lady Luck on your side and the winnings rolling in whilst on others, Lady Lucky disappears and the deposit is gone within minutes – the bingo equivalent of PE!

Of course there are many other comparisons I could have made but I shall leave the rest to your imagination, or you can comment below.

However, I will leave you with one thought – bingo balls are smoother!
