Tidy Savers Update – August 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Aug. 4th 2016 11:52 AM

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!

Help For Heroes – Tidy Bingo’s 5th Donation

Posted by on: Wednesday, Aug. 3rd 2016 12:18 PM

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).

Posted by on: Tuesday, Jan. 5th 2016 3:56 PM

To date we have now donated £2238.75 with a further £49.25 raised since we last donated to this great cause. As always when we make a donation, Help For Heroes send us a letter and if you continue reading you will find a scan of the letter received.

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…..

Christmas Game From Coff

Tuesday, Dec. 22nd 2015 5:28 PM

Often when the presents have been opened and the turkey eaten we’ll settle down in front of the TV for the Queen’s speech or a film or two. It can always seem like a bit of an anti-climax if we’re honest, but Coff has given us a little food for thought with a special Christmas game.

What you need us two packs playing cards & variety of gifts (preferably a variety of different types; some good, some rubbish and some just downright silly). Wrap all of the gifts, disguise as best you can e.g a sponge from £1 shop in a box with a bell or a few beads to make noise when shaken, junk from Xmas Crackers put in a jam jar etc.

Christmas Party Time At Tidy

Friday, Dec. 18th 2015 3:51 PM

You’ll likely be aware that on Tuesday night our Christmas Party is happening. Have you got your best bib and tucker ready? It’s BYOB, that’s bottle not bingo, we’ll supply that! All number allocations have been done so check your email (spam too) to see which numbers you’ll be hoping bingo is called on between 8 pm and 10 pm.

Because the Cupboard opening times are an hour shorter, from 9 pm until 10 pm we’ll be giving away the £40 of Love2Shop vouchers along with a festive chat game (Remember that chat games are paying out 1,000 on Tuesday 22nd as an extra Christmas bonus). Keep hold of your Mistletoe Mayhem numbers, it is these that could win you the vouchers too!

Changes At Tidy Bingo

Tuesday, Dec. 15th 2015 3:52 PM

There are to be some quite significant changes at Tidy Bingo this week, namely around the opening times and rules in the Tidy Cupboard. David and I know that these changes are not going to be well received, but we have had to make some decisions for the future of the site.

The Tidy Cupboard, although popular with a handful of regular players, has never really taken off with the other players at Tidy Bingo. No matter what we do, or what promotions we introduce, it hasn’t been quite the success we were hoping for. It is for this reason that we are going to be reducing the opening times.

Tidy Savers Payout

Wednesday, Nov. 25th 2015 12:24 AM

The Tidy Savers club is now closed until 1st December 2015 when you will be given the option to start saving again for next year. I’ve tallied all the figures up, done the maths and am really pleased to tell you that over the next couple of days I will be despatching Love2Shop vouchers to a value of £1,135!

If that wasn’t enough, we are also crediting back a total of 78,000 in loyalty points too. The reason for this is that some accounts had saved totals that weren’t multiples of £5 or £10. Where it was for the sake of 25p or similar to round up to the nearest multiple, we just did it out of the goodness of our hearts but on many accounts, this wasn’t possible.

wtg_lol Wins Exclusive Progressive For Second Time

Sunday, Nov. 22nd 2015 10:18 PM

On Friday night one of the regular Cubbiers (the nickname given to the players in the Tidy Cupboard) landed the exclusive progressive jackpot for the second time!

Tidy Bingo is certainly lucky for this lady as not only has she won the progressive jackpot twice, she has also topped the promotional leaderboards on several occasions.

Come Dine With Me Free Jackpot

Sunday, Nov. 22nd 2015 8:54 PM

If you have played at Tidy Bingo recently you may well have noticed that there is a new tab in the main lobby called Come Dine JP. For those of you who don’t know, this is a FREE game that is set to play on Thursday 3rd December at 7pm, one that boasts an impressive jackpot of £250 and is exclusively available to Tidy Bingo players only.

Some of you may already know the reason for this free game, and some of you may also know that it’s the largest exclusive jackpot that we have offered to date. It’s also the first free exclusive game we have ever had!

Sharing A Tidy Bingo Facebook Post

Thursday, Nov. 19th 2015 7:14 PM

I thought today we’d do a little lesson on sharing Facebook posts and the reason is entirely mercenary (although maybe helpful for some too). When you share a Facebook post, it’s good for us because it gets the brand to a wider audience. Of course, we don’t want you to fill your personal wall with Tidy stuff, but if you think it’s a good deal, or you know someone who might be interested – share it with him or her.

It’s really easy to share a post on Facebook and in this blog we give you a quick step by step guide, using the recent post about our Come Dine With Me free game (we think that one is worth sharing).

Couples Come Dine With Me

Monday, Nov. 16th 2015 2:15 PM

As most of our regulars are aware, a few months ago now my husband and I recorded our Couples Come Dine With Me. Last week received notification from Channel 4 that our episode is to air on Thursday, December 3rd at 5 pm!

I was considering opening the Tidy Cupboard as the show aired but have decided against that. What we are looking to do though is change the opening times on a Wednesday and Thursday to 6 pm until midnight. If that happens, then on Thursday 3rd December, I’ll go all celebrity on you and be in the room for a Q&A session hahaha

Our Heart Is No Longer Heavy..

Thursday, Nov. 12th 2015 5:58 PM

It’s not often that I am really excited to be writing a retraction of content that I have previously posted but today I am over the moon! David and I have just been on a conference call with Ben and Alex of the 15 Network and are pleased to announce that we have been able to reach a compromise that all parties are happy with.

First and foremost this means that Tidy will be staying exactly how it is – all the exclusives, the Cupboard, CM Blondie – it will all remain – if you’ll still have us?

Tidy Bingo November 2015 Catchphrase

Wednesday, Nov. 11th 2015 12:36 PM

It’s been a while since our last Catchphrase competition so today we are launching another! For those of you who have not played along before, it’s really easy to take part. Below (and on Facebook) is an image that contains six images. Each of the images create catchphrase or word, you just have to decipher them all and give us six correct answers.

Catchphrase - ends 18 11 15
