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…..

Double Whammy PJP’s In The Tidy Cupboard

Tuesday, Sep. 2nd 2014 9:41 PM

Our players will know that the exclusive progressive jackpot was only introduced at Tidy Bingo on 20th May 2014 and prior to this evening had only been won twice. The first win came just a week after it was introduced. ‘heidi2111’ called bingo in 44 numbers on the number 50 and landed herself £80.53 on 27th May.

Just over a month later over £80 was won by ‘xxxBAZINGAxxx’ when she called bingo in just 36 calls on the number 20.

Birthday Fun And Frolics

Tuesday, Aug. 19th 2014 11:11 PM

Last night saw the birthday celebrations take place at Tidy Bingo, albeit it a little premature considering we aren’t officially one until tomorrow. The reason for our prematurity is that we wanted to celebrate with our players directly, hence the party in our standalone room and what at party it was! It all got underway with the Tidy and The Troops game but because it is our birthday, ALL of the ticket sales went to the Help For Heroes kitty and between us we raised £71!

Then we played a little Pin The Tail on the Donkey before the first session of Pass The Parcel. This is where the fun really began….

Nickie’s Move Update

Thursday, Jul. 10th 2014 9:35 AM

You’ll be happy to hear that Nickie is in her new abode, albeit sans furniture and sleeping on an air bed. Ah, the joys of moving house, I think none of us would wish that on anyone! But, as with any move, there is one big issue that will cause delays here at Tidy. Nickie’s internet is down and won’t be up again until Thursday the 17th of July. Ouch.

I did offer her my dongle to play with in the meantime, but I’m not sure she didn’t take it the wrong way as I haven’t heard from her since. Nickie, it’s a mobile broadband dongle, I didn’t mean anything rude! Honestly!

In practical terms, that means Nickie will be unable to announce any competition or promo results until she is tapped back into the grid. We’d like to apologise for the delay, but I’m sure you’ll all join me in wishing Nickie the best in her new place. Tune in next Thursday and Nickie will announce anything that’s outstanding then! In the meantime have a great weekend, and don’t forget you can pre-buy our exclusive Birthday Blow-out Guaranteed Jackpot game in the Jackpots tab of the lobby right, now.

Another Progressive Jackpot Winner

Sunday, Jun. 29th 2014 10:25 AM

Stalwart fans of Tidy Bingo will know that our progressive jackpot, the exclusive one only found in the Tidy Cupboard, was only added to the site on 20th May. Just a week after it was added player ‘heidi2111’ managed to reel it in and net herself over £80 in prize money by calling bingo in 44 on the number 50.

We thought it might be a little while until we saw another winner but it was just four Tidy Cupboard sessions later that another Tidyer, player xxxBAZINGAxxx got lucky and took home another progressive jackpot prize of over £80!

This Time Tomorrow, We Will Be Millionaires (Hopefully)!

Tuesday, Jun. 17th 2014 3:39 PM

Tidy Bingo players did not win the big money jackpot for the Euromillions of £109,589,905 on Friday. Spain was the country who netted the big prize and there was just one winner but by this time tomorrow Tidyer’s, hopefully we will be millionaires! Our ticket for the Euromillions draw tonight has been bought and currently, following the rules of the Tidy Millions promotion, there is just one syndicate member and that is us.

Of course we want more syndicate members than that, we want to be able to share our good fortune (presuming the right number combinations come out in the draw) with Tidyers. As usual, to ensure your name is on the syndicate list you simply have to play five games of bingo in the Tidy Cupboard from 7pm until 9pm this evening.

First Tidy Exclusive Progressive Jackpot Winner

Thursday, May. 29th 2014 1:00 PM

When we added the progressive jackpot to the Tidy Cupboard we knew the chances of winning were better than that of the network jackpot but we didn’t expect it to be won after just one session! On 27th May at 7.15pm, just one week after the exclusive progressive jackpot had been added to Tidy Bingo, heidi2111 called bingo on the number 50 in just 44 numbers!

44 is the number of calls required to win the progressive in the networked room, the Tidy progressive has one more number making it slightly easier to win (45 calls or less) but heidi2111 didn’t need it to bag herself a win worth £80.53!

Coming Soon To The Tidy Cupboard

Thursday, May. 8th 2014 9:44 AM

Regulars in the Tidy Cupboard will know that as well as having a great time in the room, you also get to put forward ideas and share the occasional brain storming session with David and myself. The result of one of these sessions (although not a lot of brain involved!) was Roomie of the Month – a suggestion put forward by player Voddi_n_Redbull.

It’s not always the players that come up with the ideas directly but a conversation between them or a passing comment will often get the grey matter working for myself and David. It was such a conversation that led us to the most recent introduction coming soon to the Tidy Cupboard – its very own progressive jackpot!

Round Up Of Newbie Jackpot Results

Monday, Jan. 27th 2014 12:28 PM

What with Christmas, the New Year and preparing all the new and exciting changes at Tidy Bingo, the results for the Newbie Jackpot games have taken a bit of back seat if late. In fact, it was back in November that I last looked and revealed the results to our players! Of course the winners know that they have won but for me, and I hope you too, it’s nice to see how Tidyers have fared in the games.

Originally it was expected that the Newbie Jackpot game would only be available until end of December but because it has been so popular that it is schedule to be available until at least the end of February.

Great Start To 2014

Thursday, Jan. 2nd 2014 11:39 AM

Last night the big money Happy 2014 jackpot game took place, a game that boasted £1,014 the Community Jackpot to share amongst the 3TG, 2TG and 1TG losers and £1,000 for the three 90 ball winners. There were 213 players who took part in the game and of those 121 players too a prize of at least £5.75.

Of the 213 players who had tickets for the game, 32 were Tidy Bingo players. Of the 32 Tidyer’s who had tickets, half won a prize of at least £5.75

Newbies Jackpots – How Have Tidyers Fared?

Wednesday, Dec. 11th 2013 7:02 PM

It has been a little while since I have done a results piece based on the Newbie Jackpot games every Friday, I think I am two behind now. The reason is simple, I’ve been distracted by running the Santa’s Sack promotion and making sure everyone gets their prizes on time. This is a little catch up, for me as well as you, to see how we have fared in the games since the last results I posted on 22nd November.

There have been two games since then with another happening this Friday 13th December – ohhh, let’s hope that date isn’t unlucky for Tidyers. The game of 29th November had 61 players with the game on 6th December having slightly less, just 49 players. Read on for the actual results and how Tidy Bingo newbies got on.
