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…..

Tidy Bingo And Your Mobile Or Tablet

Posted by on: Tuesday, Dec. 31st 2013 12:49 AM

Over the last couple of weeks we have seen an influx of ‘complaints’ on our Facebook page where players state that they cannot get the page to load. This concerned us as I am sure you can imagine, after all we want our players to be able to enjoy the site as much as possible. Upon further investigation it came to light that the issues were based around playing bingo on a mobile or tablet, something we are not yet ready for.

HTML5, the ability to play at Tidy Bingo on your mobile or tablet, is coming very soon but we are not quite there yet but it just goes to show that most players perception is that all sites are instantly available on a mobile device.

Personally, I don’t get how bingo translates to mobile, you lose the social side of the game in my opinion but having said that, I am old school. Old school from the days when the social side of bingo online was important – having a giggle with your friends in the chat room was what made the game fun. That’s the only reason I don’t think that bingo translates well to mobile, great for the slots fan – not for the avid bingo player in my opinion.

What do you think? Are you looking forward to Tidy Bingo being available on your mobile or will you be sticking to your desktop / laptop for your games?

Are you like me, love the social side of the game? If you are then I’ll let you into a secret *whispers* ‘Come the end of February we are hoping to have a standalone bingo room open and I’ll be the host. I’ve got some great tournaments lined up and exclusive access to the room for Tidy player’s only – will you be joining me?

For now though, please be aware that currently we are unable to offer you mobile gaming on your phone or tablet.

Coming Soon - Tidy Bingo Mobile

Update

We have now added a notification to the cashier making it clear that currently you cannot play games on your mobile or tablet as per the image below:

When will I be able to play????? On my phone and access my funds

Nickie Says:

Hi Angela

It is expected that you will be able to play on your tablet in early February. However, for mobile phones it could be as late as June before the site becomes accessible to this type of device.

Regards, as always

Linda Says:

I am really annoyed too ,quick enough to take funds and then you realise you can’t play on iPads and no way to get your money refunded as you can’t draw out less than £30 when I deposited £10 . Please make it clear you cannot play on mobiles ,tablets iPads etc .

Nickie Says:

Hi Linda

We understand your frustration and a recent introduction in the cashier shows a pop up making players aware that mobile play is not available as per the image above under the update in the article..

Regards, as always
