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…..

Talk Like A Pirate Bonus Codes

Thursday, Sep. 19th 2013 9:22 AM

Today is Talk Like A Pirate day and to celebrate we WON’T be calling all our players and shouting Ahoy, Avast or even Arrrrr or Shiver Me Timbers down the phone but we will be offering you pieces of eight! This will come in the form of bonus codes that you will find later in this article.

It’s probably not best to refer to your other half as a scurvy bilge rat but there are some great basic for Talk Like A Pirate day. Most impressive are some of the chat up lines we came across but these are more for the men amongst us, here are a few examples:

Elusive Facebook Likes

Wednesday, Sep. 18th 2013 2:09 PM

If you have read our blog or checked out the promotions page at Tidy Bingo then you will know that we have already launched two exclusive promotions. One of these is called the Facebook Snowball and offers up the chance to win Amazon vouchers with no cost at all. I’m a little perplexed as to why more players aren’t finding us on Facebook and liking us for the chance to win these vouchers to be honest.

We are, at last count, just nine little likes away from hitting our first milestone of 100 likes and this means that we would then post a status that says the following:

The Face Of Tidy Bingo, Who Would You Choose?

Tuesday, Sep. 17th 2013 7:06 AM

In the world of online bingo there have been many famous faces linked with brands on the Internet through advertising and we were wondering, who should be the face of Tidy Bingo? We’re not yet planning any advertising on television but that’s not to say it won’t be something that we do in the future but do you think having a celebrity makes a site more appealing and if so, which celeb should we approach for Tidy?

For other brands online we have seen Vic Reeves with 888Ladies, Barbara Windsor is the face of Jackpot Joy as the Queen of Bingo and we have even seen Katie Price flirt outrageously with a purple suited fox! Even one of the newest brands online today, Bingo Godz, has a celeb connection – Brian Blessed is the voice of the balls.

Five A Day And A Little Monday Madness

Monday, Sep. 16th 2013 7:37 AM

How was your weekend? I had plans to spend a bit of time at the gym following a little retail therapy but actually didn’t bother. However, on Friday I did manage to conquer a hill that has beaten me on the bike on many occasions thanks to an immense amount of encouragement from my friend Helen.

Now it is back to the grindstone but to relieve the Monday morning blues we have the second week of the Five A Day promotion and also there’s a little Monday Madness doing the rounds.

Cash Cloud Results – 12th September 2013

Saturday, Sep. 14th 2013 7:59 AM

We set a challenge to Tidyer’s this week to try and improve on last weeks Cash Cloud but sadly we failed, the jackpot was nearly £200 LESS than the previous week when we were aiming for £200 MORE.
Of course it could be simple economics, last week’s jackpot was just after payday so the bingo budgets were a bit healthier than they are in the middle of the month.

Anyway, whilst the jackpot may not have been quite as impressive, the statistics for winners were better. Last night’s game had 108 players BUT there were 74 winners which means 68.5% of players who had a ticket won a prize of at least 97p. All was not lost in the Cash Cloud challenge.

Wet Bum Syndrome – Not Pleasant

Friday, Sep. 13th 2013 7:51 AM

I am hoping that when I repeat my stories of the gym or cycling, my tales of woe, that you get a giggle or two. I’m never going to actually inspire someone to want to get on a bike or join a gym, of that I am sure! My latest ‘mishap’ involved the bike but on the way to the gym and it happened a couple of days ago….

Since starting ‘properly’ with the diet and fitness regime I try to cycle at least once every day and do the gym on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Weekends I do nothing. On Wednesday I had cycled midday with my friend Helen and neighbour Michelle (a small 8.5 miler). During the ride there was a light shower but nothing to speak of but later the rain got a little heavier.

Build A Facebook Snowball

Thursday, Sep. 12th 2013 7:35 AM

Tidy Bingo is the new kid on the block as Tidyer’s will know and one of the things we have to do to make the brand a success is attract new players but more importantly, maintain the interest of ALL players. Although only we have only been open a couple of weeks if you have looked at the promotions page you will find TWO exclusive promotions that are available just to the Tidy Bingo players (or Tidyer’s as we fondly call you). One of these is the Facebook Snowball……

We want to build a great community for the Tidyer’s and to do this we need to utilise social networking sites like Facebook. We have a Facebook fan page and either David or myself post all the posts, status updates and pictures. We want to be accessible to you and not just faceless people behind a brand.

Tidy Bingo Cash Cloud Challenge

Wednesday, Sep. 11th 2013 6:50 AM

Ladies and gents, all Tidy Bingo players – we are about to set you a challenge. There are no additional prizes for completing the challenge, just a sense of achievement and camaraderie amongst us…

Tomorrow is Thursday and this means the first of the Cash Cloud jackpot games. As many of you will know, the 7pm game on a Thursday usually boasts the most impressive prize pool of the week aside from the pre-buy jackpot games. Last week the jackpot reached a truly impressive amount of £583.21. This week it would be great if we could take this up to the £700 mark.

Kindle Fire Win For Tidy Bingo Player

Tuesday, Sep. 10th 2013 10:18 AM

We’re not even been open a month yet and we’ve already see a couple of big winners at the site and the latest is a player called WelshSheep. There’s no baaaaaaaad luck (sorry, I couldn’t resist) for this player as he landed the top prize in the network Jackpot Fiesta promotion that was running throughout August.

Players were entered into special draws for completing certain tasks and although Tidy Bingo wasn’t launched for the first of the two draws, a number of our players had their name in the virtual hat to win goodies like vouchers, smoothie makes, champagne and retro sweet hampers.
