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…..

X Factor Six Chair Challenge – The Overs

Posted by on: 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.

I had not seen some of the over 25 singers on previous shows and from some of the performances I could see why – I was pretty unimpressed by the first few performances. Things did improve, however, and Simon was beautifully put his place by Anton Stephans, who despite his animated facial movements when singing is a firm favourite with the other judges. Before he sang Simon mentioned to Anton that he didn’t like his “weird” facial expressions. The comeback was genius, quick as a flash Anton replied ‘When you live in a world in which Botox is normal, facial expressions seem unusual. But if, like me and my friends, you can’t afford it, your face moves’. Both Anton and the glorious Jennifer Phillips smashed their auditions and were rightly given seats, they were joined by Bupsi, Ebru, Kerrie-Anne Phillips, and (the half dead) Max Stone (who was brought back through audience power). .

A final bit of gossip for you all. One of the boys final six, Tom Bleasby, surprisingly quit the show last week claiming he didn’t feel he was ready for the live shows. He has been controversially replaced by Mason Noise who had been kicked off the shows earlier – call me cynical but this seems to be a blatant attempt at getting more ratings. It will definitely make for an interesting judges house for the boys though.

Next week sees the show back on in its regular Saturday night prime time slot and the acts will be singing for a place in the final 12. The judges will all have some help at their houses and I am looking forward to finding out our finalists. I am absolutely sure the winner will come from the girls or the groups categories but you never know – there could be a dark horse waiting to wow us when we get to the live shows. If there is – fingers crossed they are your sweepstake singer.
