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…..

Friday 30th October was quite a memorable night for Tidy Bingo players, it was host to the exclusive Halloween party that we held in the Tidy Cupboard but for one player, there were more than tangible prizes won! Tonight we saw nattie net the exclusive Tidy progressive jackpot in the game at 9.07pm, a jackpot that landed this lucky lady a win of £133.46!

Nattie got lucky in just 45 numbers and won the progressive on the number 64.

Tidy Factor 2015 – Player Allocations

Friday, Oct. 30th 2015 6:07 PM

Firstly, apologies for the delay in getting the player allocations for Tidy Factor live. The twelve finalists and one wild card were announced on 25th October 2015 but unfortunately, this was whilst I was away in Ireland. Anyway, we are here now and we have the groups, girls, boys and over categories that could see you and several other players take a share of £250 in bonus funds on offer.

All players who had made deposits totalling £30 between 29th August and 25th October 2015 are now part of this promotion and have been allocated to the following acts. If you want to find your name and the act you have been allocated use CTRL + F and then type in your username.

X Factor – The Final 12

Tuesday, Oct. 27th 2015 12:15 AM

This weekend we saw the judges houses competitions and, for the first time, the final 12 for X Factor announced live on TV. Despite Caroline Flacks dreadful autocue skills and her habit of talking over Olly Murs’ lines the shows were packed with drama and exciting to watch. Most of the favourites got through but there were a couple of surprises to keep things controversial.

First to go were Cheryl and the groups. There was some strong competition in this set of acts and it was no surprise that they all performed really well. What was surprising was the fact Cheryl had changed every single bands name? I can understand that there may have been a band called Alien before but BEKLN – surely not. We saw the newly named 4th Impact and Alien Uncovered fly through with fantastic performances for Cheryl and her right hand at the, Jess Glynne. There was no doubt both of these groups deserved their place in the final 12 but Cheryls 3rd choice certainly raised a few eyebrows. All the way through the shows we have seen BEKLYN and Silvertones battling it off (they share a sister and a brother between them) so the money was on one of them taking the 3rd spot. Both sang fantastically and you couldn’t pick between them. So Cheryl chose not too. Instead she put through the bouncy and energetic Reggie n Bollie who will definitely bring plenty of smiles to the proceedings.

Off To Ireland, Don’t Miss Me Too Much

Monday, Oct. 19th 2015 11:00 AM

As you’re all probably aware, it’s half-term next week and with my youngest only a few months from hitting 18, I’m trying to make the most of the last few times she’s likely to want to holiday with her Mum. Ibiza, Magaluf etc. they will soon be far more interesting for her!

We’re off to Ireland on Wednesday and this will have a tiny, almost insignificant impact on you guys. Whilst I am away, the Witchy Winners leaderboard will not be updated daily. In fact, the last update will be done on the morning of 21st October 2015. As soon as I get back (29th October), all scores from the previous week will be added to the leaderboard.

X Factor Six Chair Challenge – The Overs

Monday, Oct. 19th 2015 12:15 AM

This was the final Sunday of six-chair challenge X Factor shows and firstly we wrapped up the last seats for the groups. Bands BEKLN and Silver Tones sang for their spots, and despite neither performing as well as on previous shows, were both given chairs in place of the two rather lacklustre girl bands – Mon Amie and Rumour Has It. Cheryl does have a good bunch of bands this year but whether they will beat the girls is a tough one to call.

Once the groups were settled it became the Simon Cowell show with him starting the proceedings by moaning “I can’t believe I’ve been stuck with this category. Why am I hating this category even more now?” despite having just apologised to the singers for his lack of enthusiasm. This set the tone of the show for Simon, he told Max Stone he looked half dead before the poor man had a chance to sing a note and muttered “Oh god, I hate this guy” when it was Zen Blythe’s turn to take the stage. Twitter was alive with comments and complaints about his behaviour, prompting one tweet of “Is Simon on his period tonight?” Many viewers did apparently welcome the return of the old Simon Cowell with his mean comments and straight talk – it’s probably what the show needs right now.

Tidy Lotto Changes

Monday, Oct. 12th 2015 1:03 PM

On Saturday 10th, October things changed in the National Lottery Lotto game and as such, things have to change a little in our Tidy Lotto promotion too. Currently we actually have very few players actually participating in this promotion but who knows, a little reminder like this might increase the numbers.

Below is a list of all the Tidyers who have submitted six numbers by email to team@tidybingo.com. All of these players, provided they have deposited at least £20 in the month prior to a qualifying Lotto draw, are in with a chance of winning up to £50 in bonus funds / £25 cold hard cash. Is your name on the list?

X Factor Six Chair Challenge – The Boys/Groups

Monday, Oct. 12th 2015 12:43 PM

This Sunday we saw the Boys six chair challenge and part of the Groups X Factor competition as well. Once, again the scheduling seems a little odd and the programme ended before we knew who the final six were for the groups. Not quite the exciting cliffhanger the producers would like to think. We wait with not quite bated breath for the last two groups to sing next week, alongside the Overs who will be competing to grab a chair.

Desperate to increase the ratings for the X Factor we saw a very confusing, flare up between arrogant rapper Mason Noise and Simon Cowell. The wannabe Kanye not only brought on a fellow rapper whilst singing his audition (despite not in the groups section), he stopped proceedings and strangely asked the crowd to film him on their phones whilst he told some truths. The singer seemed to be upset that he had only received 47 seconds of air time for his original audition whilst others received up to 10 minutes, leading to Simon asking him to leave whilst defending the editing team.

You Demand, We Deliver

Thursday, Oct. 8th 2015 9:55 AM

For quite some time now you guys have been asking to have the Tidy Cupboard for more sessions each week. Today we can tell you that your wish is our command! As of 14th October, there will be two new sessions added for the opening times of the Cupboard.

Currently, we are open on a Tuesday and a Friday from 7 pm until 11 pm and the lovely CM Blondie hosts both sessions. As from next week, the schedule for the Tidy Cupboard will be changing. Instead of two sessions per week, there will now be four!
