As regular players at Tidy Bingo will know, Tidy is under new ownership now and as such, we need to settle the Tidy Savers promotion and ensure you all get your vouchers that you have saved with us up to and including 31st July 2016.

In total you managed to save £550.25 since November 2015, an impressive amount by all accounts!

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…..

First Tidy Exclusive Progressive Jackpot Winner

Thursday, May. 29th 2014 1:00 PM

When we added the progressive jackpot to the Tidy Cupboard we knew the chances of winning were better than that of the network jackpot but we didn’t expect it to be won after just one session! On 27th May at 7.15pm, just one week after the exclusive progressive jackpot had been added to Tidy Bingo, heidi2111 called bingo on the number 50 in just 44 numbers!

44 is the number of calls required to win the progressive in the networked room, the Tidy progressive has one more number making it slightly easier to win (45 calls or less) but heidi2111 didn’t need it to bag herself a win worth £80.53!

Thank You From Help For Heroes

Monday, May. 19th 2014 11:13 AM

As a regular player at Tidy Bingo then you will be well aware that each and every Tuesday we host a game called Tidy and The Troops. You’ll also know that the money from tickets sold above the 200 required to make the £50 jackpot is added to a kitty that is then donated to Help For Heroes. To date we have raised over £500 and just recently we made our first donation.

Our first donation was for £467.75 and we have just received our thank you letter from Help For Heroes. As you are the people who have raised the money, it’s only right you get to pat yourselves on the back too.

Ripon Rockets and Ripon ________ Competition

Thursday, May. 15th 2014 1:39 PM

Tidy Bingo are pleased to announce that following discussions with a local netball team we are now the proud sponsors of the Ripon Rockets Senior team. More can be read about the sponsorship on the dedicated page on our blog (click here). We actually sponsor two Ripon netball teams but the second is newly formed and has yet to be named. This is where you come in….

As part of the sponsorship deal we have a unique competition for Tidy Bingo players, the chance to name the second team. To do so it is worth noting that there is a certain theme running through the teams – we have the juniors who are the Ripon Comets, another team that are Ripon Eclipse and of course, Ripon Rockets. This theme needs to continue so when you are thinking of submissions, think universe, think explosions….

Coming Soon To The Tidy Cupboard

Thursday, May. 8th 2014 9:44 AM

Regulars in the Tidy Cupboard will know that as well as having a great time in the room, you also get to put forward ideas and share the occasional brain storming session with David and myself. The result of one of these sessions (although not a lot of brain involved!) was Roomie of the Month – a suggestion put forward by player Voddi_n_Redbull.

It’s not always the players that come up with the ideas directly but a conversation between them or a passing comment will often get the grey matter working for myself and David. It was such a conversation that led us to the most recent introduction coming soon to the Tidy Cupboard – its very own progressive jackpot!
