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!

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…..

New Ripon Netball Team Name – You Decide

Tuesday, Aug. 26th 2014 2:06 PM

Poll Closed; the new netball team will be called the Ripon Meteors.


Although we are a little behind with the poll to decide the name of the new Ripon netball team, the second team to join the Ripon Rockets with Tidy Bingo sponsorship, finally we have whittled it down to just five choices. The new name will be chosen by you the Tidy players, simply read on and click your choice of name for the new team.

There were plenty of entries, some of which we couldn’t possibly use (thanks Voddi_N_Redbull) but between the coach and I, we have found five that we like the sound of best. The vote is also being opened up to the team members too, after all they will be the people playing under that name.

Birthday Bash Changes

Wednesday, Aug. 20th 2014 9:57 AM

Many of you who have been with Tidy since the beginning will be well aware of the exclusive promotions that we offer to our players. The same cannot be said of those who don’t read the blog or check out the promotional pages on the site. Whilst we would love it if everyone got to know their way around the site, we understand that different people have different expectations of their bingo experience.

For this reason we have chosen to open the Birthday Bash promotion up to a wider Tidy Bingo audience by a slight change in the rules to get in the draw. We removed the requirement to pop along to the Tidy Cupboard and repeat a promotional phrase, it’s apparent that this hasn’t had the desired effect and enticed more into our standalone room.

Birthday Fun And Frolics

Tuesday, Aug. 19th 2014 11:11 PM

Last night saw the birthday celebrations take place at Tidy Bingo, albeit it a little premature considering we aren’t officially one until tomorrow. The reason for our prematurity is that we wanted to celebrate with our players directly, hence the party in our standalone room and what at party it was! It all got underway with the Tidy and The Troops game but because it is our birthday, ALL of the ticket sales went to the Help For Heroes kitty and between us we raised £71!

Then we played a little Pin The Tail on the Donkey before the first session of Pass The Parcel. This is where the fun really began….

All Settled In And Ready To Party

Tuesday, Aug. 5th 2014 11:01 AM

First things first, a little apology to our blog for the neglect! What with the move and everything, the blog looks a little unloved but we’re all settled in and finally getting on top of things. The house is lovely and all of the boxes are now unpacked phew. The last few weeks have boasted great weather, although it is currently piddling down, and I am now sporting a rather nice tan.

So what has been happening with Tidy Bingo? Well the most exciting thing for me personally is that we are not far away from our first birthday. I can’t believe it has been a year since we opened but then I’m always shocked at how quickly the four-hour sessions pass in the Tidy Cupboard on a Tuesday. The saying ‘Time flies when you are having fun’ is certainly true at Tidy.
