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…..

Newbie Jackpot Results – 15th November 2013

Saturday, Nov. 16th 2013 7:48 AM

Another Newbie Jackpot game took place last night and as regular readers of the blog will know, Tidyers tend to do quite well in this jackpot game. Question is did you guys come out as winners in last night’s game? Good news again, two of the three winners who shared the 90 ball jackpot were from Tidy Bingo, the one player left with 1TG when bingo was called and five of the eight who had 2TG were Tidyers too.

The figures speak for themselves in the big money games, Tidy Bingo players don’t do too bad at all!

Cash Cloud Results – 14th November 2013

Friday, Nov. 15th 2013 11:51 AM

Every Friday morning I get a little bit excited because it’s the day to check the Cash Cloud results. Every time I login to get the details I wonder if we have beaten the current highest jackpot since Tidy Bingo opened, did last night’s prize money exceed the previous record of just over £583? Sadly not, but we were only about £60 shy of doing so!

Last night there were 122 players who had bought tickets for the 7pm game in the Cash Cloud room and of these 74 won a prize of at least £2.03. This means that 60.65% of players that had a ticket were winners.

Big Progressive Win For Tidy Player

Thursday, Nov. 14th 2013 2:36 PM

If you’re a regular Tidy Bingo player then the chances are you will have sat in one of the rooms, watch the progressive jackpot grow and hope that you can call bingo in the required number of calls. For one Tidyer that was exactly what happened just a little while ago. ‘verytidyme’ netted the jackpot in the Golden Balls room winning herself a very TIDY £1,639.64.

This lucky lady has been a player with Tidy Bingo since the beginning of September but today was probably her most exciting in the rooms.

Penny For The Guy Update

Tuesday, Nov. 12th 2013 4:27 PM

We’re nearly half way through November which means there is just over half a month in which to secure your wins on the G, U and Y patterns for the Penny For The Guy promotion. It would be really easy to rest on our laurels and wait until the end of the month to see how Tidyer’s are doing in this exclusive promotion but that’s not us. We want our players to win a £25 bonus, the prize on offer, so we have had a look at the stats.

In this blog we are going to give players who have won on at least two of the patterns a bit of a heads up as to how close they are to the £25 bonus. Plenty of you Tidyer’s have won on at least one of the required patterns and we have high hopes that we’ll be credited plenty of accounts on 1st December.

Cinnamon Challenge Catastrophe

Monday, Nov. 11th 2013 7:57 AM

My son Josh, the one who works at Butlins, is currently home with his girlfriend as it is the end of season. They are only here until Tuesday when they travel to Turkey for a holiday and as such, we have been trying to cram in as much “family time” as possible. Friday night was a DVD and pizza night and Saturday was a games night with drink involved, it was never going to end well!

We purchased a new board game called 5 Second Rule whose rules are that you have to name three things from the card in 5 Seconds – the name says it all really. In our version of the game, if you didn’t do it, you did a shot – as you can imagine, we got them all right and were sober as judges by the end of the night……NOT!

Big Band Night X Factor Eviction

Sunday, Nov. 10th 2013 11:22 PM

On Saturday night the remaining contestants in the X Factor show had to perform Big Band numbers. Some of the acts shone but a number received less than rave reviews from the four judges. One act who I actually felt sorry for was Sam Callahan because his reviews, especially from Gary Barlow, were a little patronising to say the least.

When it came to performances the stand out winner for me last night was once again Sam Bailey and I still believe she will win. She certainly did Michael Bolton proud with her take on the Frank Sinatra classic, New York, New York.

Newbie Jackpot Results – 8th November 2013

Sunday, Nov. 10th 2013 6:21 PM

Friday bought with it another Newbie jackpot game across the 15 Network and I love checking the results each week. Why? Because I get really excited when I see Tidy Bingo players taking a share of the prize pool. How did we fare this week though? Were Tidyers in amongst the three main winners of the 90 ball game?

A quick look at the winner’s list saw that it was pretty obvious that a Tidyer took the top prize on Friday night’s game, a player called Tidyman couldn’t really be from any of the other sites on the network could he? The lucky chap netted a cash prize of £200 and he only registered with us on Friday too!

Cash Cloud Results – 7th November 2013

Friday, Nov. 8th 2013 10:45 AM

The Cash Cloud jackpot last Thursday wasn’t too shoddy at all but the question on everyone’s lips – well, mine at least – is did the prize pool beat the record amount of £583.21 (highest since Tidy opened)? That and how well did Tidyers fair in the results of course.

We were close; closer than we have been in a while but sadly around £150 short of the record. The prize pool totalled £435.12 but there were 71 players who won a prize of at least £2.29 each. With 122 people with tickets that means the percentage that won was 58.19%!

15 Network Bonfire Winners

Thursday, Nov. 7th 2013 7:56 AM

As you are all probably aware, on Bonfire Night (5th November) there were several different promotions taking place at Tidy Bingo and other brands on the 15 Network. Part of the deal was that someone would win an Amazon Kindle, ten players would win £10 Love2Shop vouchers and some would unlock spins on the bonus wheel.

Here we take a look at the winners and see if any Tidyer’s got lucky for Guy Fawkes.

Firework Fun At Tidy Bingo

Tuesday, Nov. 5th 2013 12:02 AM

Today is Bonfire Night and whilst you may all have been watching the fireworks over the weekend, we’ve got a little explosion of a promotion for you at Tidy Bingo today. Our firework fun will have you ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ over the prizes rather than a colourful display in the sky though because up for grabs is an Amazon Kindle, 10 x £10 Love2Shop vouchers, bonus codes and free wheel spins.

Today there is to be two prize draws and to ensure that your name is in the virtual hat at Tidy Bingo you have to complete a couple of tasks.
