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…..

Progressive Jackpot News – Another Winner!

Posted by on: 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.

On Facebook wtg_lol said

I can’t thank you all enough, OMG! I am still in shock. This has come in handy as you all know my son is doing a 3-year tour in Cyprus and rang me yesterday saying “Mum, I have a week off. Help me out and get me a flight home.” I would have found the money somehow BUT OMG, the progressive jackpot win has helped so, so much xxx

What better way for the money to be spent than getting her lad back home for a week 🙂

Progressive Jackpot Changes – What Would Have Been.

Now this post was originally scheduled to tell you how we had organised for the PJP number of calls to change when it reached £200. The reason that we are keeping this in this congratulatory post is to a) boast and b) let you know that we are true to our word. Discussions had taken place with the network this week and this is what was scheduled to happen (as written by Blondie):

Our progressive jackpot in the Tidy Cupboard was scheduled to look a lot tastier with an increase in the amount of numbers required to win. As you all know, the main network progressive has to be won in 39 numbers, a tough ask. I don’t know if I have ever seen anyone win in 39 calls! (little note for Blondie – xxxBAZINGAxxx won ours in 36 calls whilst billy0mates did it in 38) Yes, the pot grows big but it’s not in your pocket! Ours has never been that low with 45 calls required, but we have noticed it hasn’t been won since last September. With that in mind, Nickie and David had decided to shake things up so we can get it won.

The number increase starts soon and is as follows. It will continue rising until a Tidyer wins it and that Tidyer could be you!

  • 14th August – 46 calls
  • 21st August – 47 calls
  • 28th August – 48 calls
  • 4th September – 49 calls
  • 11th September – 50 calls

This means one of you WILL be walking away with at least £200 and this should be happening soon. I am really excited about this and, of course, am hoping whoever wins it is in the Cupboard with me at the time so we can celebrate a mega win. You know here at Tidy like our players to win rather than just watching the pot grow from afar – so I can’t wait to see which Tidyer takes it all.
