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…..

VIP – Important Announcement

Friday, Aug. 21st 2015 1:35 PM

As many of you will be aware, there have been some changes around how a VIP status is calculated on the 15 Network. The changes were implemented without prior notice to players or ourselves and as such, caused quite a few sad faces amongst Tidyers. Sad faces are not what we want to see and whilst we agree with the changes implemented, we were not at all happy that there had been no notification of the change.

David and I have been in talks with the 15 Network and they have been very understanding of our frustrations and as such have agreed to reinstate the VIP level of any player who has made a deposit with Tidy Bingo between 1st June and 18th August 2015. Below is the email that is to be sent to the affected and eligible players in the next day or so. Unfortunately, you do need to contact support to request the change BUT should you have any issues getting it done, please contact us on team@tidybingo.com.

Star Signs

Tuesday, Aug. 18th 2015 11:52 AM

As myself and Tidy share a birthday this week, meaning we are both Leo’s, it got me thinking about star signs. Leo’s are supposedly generous (Tidy definitely is), enthusiastic, bossy (me…never!!) and organised. Famous Leo’s include Madonna, Barack Obama, Mick Jagger and Babs Windsor. We are supposedly most compatible with the signs Aries, Sagittarius and Taurus – which explains why I am single …. I’ve never been out with any of those!

I do seem to be a “typical” Leo though, but my daughters don’t seem to follow their signs traits much, so I do wonder how much truth there is to it. According to some research, Leo’s are the most likely to be successful and Gemini’s the least. Sagittarians are two times more likely to become famous when young than any other sign. From the top 10 list of the world’s richest people three 3 are Scorpio and three are Gemini’s (I’d say that’s pretty successful) so can your star sign mean you are luckier then others?

I Love Vinyl

Tuesday, Aug. 11th 2015 12:15 AM

Following our chat in the Cupboard Friday I thought I’d post about music this week and in particularly good old vinyl records. I am still lucky enough to have my collection – when I was very short of cash at college I was going to sell some rare AC/DC picture discs but my friends couldn’t bear it so lent me money instead! I really do feel for Coff who lost all hers after lending them out and Billy who had to sell hers in the past.

There is something really satisfying about an album cover or a 12″ disc, especially when gatefold as they always had extra pictures, info or the words to the songs on them. I remember when the album “Welcome To The Pleasuredome” by Frankie Goes To Hollywood came out. You could buy fake tattoos, enamel badges, T-shirts, shorts, socks and hoodies by mail from a leaflet included. I was so happy  to get some of these bits for my birthday that year which I wore to death. I still have a couple of the badges and the t-shirt after all these years (30 OMG!!).

August Catchphrase Competition

Monday, Aug. 10th 2015 1:48 PM

The winners of this promotion were wolf67, awesomeduo and sparky321


It’s been a while since we ran a Catchphrase Competition at Tidy so today I’ve spent a little time with my thinking cap on to create one. The rules are the same as they always were, get all six correct and your name goes into the hat to win one a prize. For August we will have not one, but THREE winners drawn at random from all the correct entries and remember, it’s free to enter for all depositing players at Tidy Bingo.

Below you will find the six images that you have to decipher (they will also be posted on Facebook) and all you have to do is email us, or message us on Facebook, the correct answers.

Progressive Jackpot News – Another Winner!

Tuesday, Aug. 4th 2015 10:42 PM

It’s been quite a while since one of our players landed the exclusive progressive jackpot in the Tidy Cupboard but tonight, at 9.45pm, wtg_lol managed to net herself a jackpot win of £198.12! An impressive win itself but when you look at the cost to her to win, it looks even better. This lucky lady, a Cupboard regular, spent just £1.20 on 24 tickets in the game that she won it on.  Not a bad return on investment at all. She won in 45 calls on the number 19.

wtg_lol then took to our Facebook page to let us know exactly what the money will be used for and we couldn’t be more pleased for her.
