As regular players at Tidy Bingo will know, Tidy is under new ownership now and as such, we need to settle the Tidy Savers promotion and ensure you all get your vouchers that you have saved with us up to and including 31st July 2016.

In total you managed to save £550.25 since November 2015, an impressive amount by all accounts!

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…..

With A Heavy Heart…

Posted by on: Tuesday, Nov. 10th 2015 11:15 AM

It is with a very heavy heart that I write this blog and it’s been a tough decision for both David and I but one that had to be made. As our regular players will know, there has recently been some changes to the site’s Terms And Conditions surrounding the minimum wagering amount before first withdrawal (increased from £30 to £100). This was a change that we were not consulted about nor told of when it was implemented.

Both David and I have been player advocates for many years (you only have to look at the sites he owns and I write for to see that – visit playingbingo.co.uk). Despite requesting that the lower figure be reinstated for our site at least, the powers that be are not currently willing to move on their position.

It is for this reason that we have made the decision that as of 1st January 2016 we will no longer be offering any of the unique and exclusive promotions that Tidy Bingo has to offer. Sadly, it also means the closure of the Tidy Cupboard.

Please be assured that this decision has been one that has been quite emotional for us, and whilst some have suggested we stop thinking like players, that is entirely the reason we chose to launch a bingo brand.

There have been a number of changes implemented by the network over time that we have had no say or input on, and whilst some of the changes we didn’t entirely agree with, none have incited such a sense of frustration and complete disbelief as the most recent.

With no room for manoeuvre and unwilling to compromise our principles, we have been left with just the one option, to stop showing Tidy the love and devotion we have over the last two and a half years and disassociate ourselves with it.

The site will still be here, the network rooms still open and the network promotions still available. We’ll just be stopping all of the following from 1st January 2016:

  • Tidy Cupboard
    (this will result in the loss of Tidy Millions, Tidy And The Troops, Bingopoly, Tidy Savers and Mop Bingo)
  • First Timers Freebie
  • Tidy Lotto
  • Facebook Snowball
  • Birthday Bash

Please note:

Tidy And The Troops – the final payment will be paid to Help For Heroes and the thank you letter posted on the blog in the same way as it always has been prior to the cessation of the promotion.
Tidy Savers – all of your Love2Shop vouchers will be despatched by 24th November 2015.
Mop Bingo – the monthly prize for November and December will still be awarded

December At Tidy Bingo

As December is the last month we’ll be active on the unique promotions front, we’ll be offering Santa’s Sack – our annual Christmas promotion and a Christmas Chaos party on 22nd December.

The latter will be a bit of a ‘cheerio’ to the Tidy Cupboard too, although the last actual session won’t be until 29th December.

David and I really appreciate your support since our launch and sincerely hope that you understand our decision.

Yet another one bites the dust! I played at Thinkbingo for many years and after the last batch of bad decisions including the disgusting treatment of loyal CMs I, along with many others, closed my account. I am sure that I am not the only player that plays, not only to win Bingo but, more importantly, for the social aspect, chatting to other players and regular CMs. It is sad that what I assume is a financial decision will spoil the site. I mainly played in Tidy Cupboard and have tried many other sites and was really happy to have found a new “home”

Nickie Says:


Thank you for your lovely words. I felt it was only appropriate to post the following clip
