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…..

Fun And Frolics In The Tidy Cupboard

Posted by on: Wednesday, Feb. 26th 2014 12:07 AM

After quite a build up to the opening of the Tidy Cupboard I was a bit nervous last night. 7pm rolled around and as I started my first shift as a CM in our standalone room, just one player was in the room and that was a friend of mine who popped along for moral support. A few more players joined over the next 30 minutes and it wasn’t long before the banter got into full swing.

We played a few chat games before the Clean The Bog tournament got underway, more banter ensued. The winner was Voddi_N_Redbull although ScaryMary322 wasn’t far behind. It all came down to a toothbrush!

A rule was made in the new room that excessive use of the TG buttons and presets would result in a booting and one player chose to test the power of my boots (all in good fun of course). David even made an appearance in the room and joined in with the fun, he even felt my boot for the funnies!

Between tournaments, rather than playing chat games and as the room wasn’t overly busy, we had a little Q and A session where we got to know each other and then it was time for another tournament, the Chase Me offering. Again, Voddi was a winner!

I thought it was a great night and whilst there weren’t as many players as we’d have liked, and the pot prizes were never going to be life changing – I spent the majority of the night laughing. I’ll be doing it all again on Friday if you want to join us.

Of course with the opening of the new room came the first Tidy and the Troops game and I for one was keen to see how much was going into the kitty for this promotion and which players got lucky on the guaranteed jackpot game. As the room is only open to Tidy players, it could only be Tidyer’s that won and for the game last night the results were:

  • One line winner – £10 prize – xnancy88
  • Two line winner – £15 prize – elapaul
  • Full house winner – £25 prize – mazza75

Congratulations to all the winners.

Now for the Tidy and The Troops kitty there was £79.75 to get the proverbial ball rolling. We needed to sell 200 tickets to cover the guaranteed jackpot and we actually sold 519. 519 x £0.25 = £79.75 and as promised this has been added to the Tidy and the Troops kitty – details of which can be seen here.

I hope to see you in the room on Friday night but before I go, I wanted to say thanks to the following players (in no particular order):-

  • mcdogs-wolves
  • Comstock
  • edstartidy
  • Steven1974
  • fannycraddock
  • cags
  • WelshSheep
  • scarymary322
  • Voddi_N_Redbull

Without those guys, I’d have been sat in the room alone! Thank you for the support, it is truly appreciated.
