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…..

10 Things You May Not Know About mcdogs-wolves

Posted by on: Friday, May. 15th 2015 12:36 AM

All the team here at Tidy Bingo have now done their 10 Things You May Not Know so we are moving onto the players! We’ve found that these posts have started many a conversation in the chat room and this is something we want to continue.

Lee is someone I have personally known for many years and like me, he didn’t think he had 10 things to say about himself but if you take the time, stop and think, we all have interesting things about us. What you might consider ordinary or boring, you fellow roomies will love to learn about you.

xnannysoupx is up next so keep an eye on the blog for her ten things but for now, here is a little you didnt know about Mcdogs.

10 Things You May Not Know About Mcdogs

1. I met Nickie in the mid 90’s when we frequented the same chat room, but we lost touch when it closed. We got back together (in the none romantic sense) in 2008 when she was looking for some help to set up the original Ballsup Bingo! site. A mutual friend put us back in touch with each other and I have not been able to get rid of her since!

2. I used to be a retail manager until I had an accident at work in my early twenties. This kick started a condition called Lymphoedema in both of my legs and I ended up being housebound for nearly ten years. I spent some of this time teaching myself basic web design and whilst it was not the best time in my life, if it had not have happened, I would never have met up with Nickie again!

3. During my time as a retail manager I met quite a few ‘famous’ people, some of whom were lovely and others who were total divas. The list includes Linda Lusardi, her hubby who was in Brookside (can never remember his name), Roy Wood and Antony Worrall Thompson. I also once had to tell a famous(ish) footballer that he had failed a credit check.

4. I used to run several youth clubs for young children with disabilities and during a visit out to a local country show, we were asked backstage to meet a boy band that had been performing. To be honest they were dire and could not sing or dance to save their lives; Their name was TAKE THAT!

5. I have only ever been to church twice and both times I have nearly died! When I was in junior school I was climbing up a ladder in the clock tower and a rung broke. During a christening in the same church when I was a teen, the side of the church got struck by lightning – I took this as a sign never to go back. I have also nearly died twice in Rhyl too, once by drowning and once being hit by car!

6. When I was about four I was nearly abducted by a German couple. We were on a family holiday in Weston Super Mare and I wondered off and got lost. I don’t remember much about it, but apparently I was gone for about two hours and when the police eventually found me, I was with a couple who told them they could not find my parents so were going to take me back to Germany with them.

7. I am a mad geek and have been since before it was the fashion. I have a wide range of tastes including horror and sci-fi and a vast collection of figures and memorabilia that is fast getting out of hand.

8. Doctors advised me against having tattoos, but I risked one and they are very addictive! My right sleeve is now complete with a tattoo for my mom, a koi, geisha, phoenix and a few other bits and bobs and I am currently planning my left sleeve that will be Doctor Who themed.

9. When I was 13 I took part in a competition run by the local council through the library to design a computer game. I came up with a Christmas Shoparound and ended up coming first. I won a Spectrum +2 and had a rather embarrassing photo published in the local newspaper complete with basin hair cut!

10. By the time you read this I should have a date (fingers crossed) for my gastric bypass operation, so beware, there will be a leaner, meaner bingo machine coming to the Tidy Cupboard in the near future.
