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).

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…..

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.

VIP – Important Announcement

Friday, Aug. 21st 2015 1:35 PM

As many of you will be aware, there have been some changes around how a VIP status is calculated on the 15 Network. The changes were implemented without prior notice to players or ourselves and as such, caused quite a few sad faces amongst Tidyers. Sad faces are not what we want to see and whilst we agree with the changes implemented, we were not at all happy that there had been no notification of the change.

David and I have been in talks with the 15 Network and they have been very understanding of our frustrations and as such have agreed to reinstate the VIP level of any player who has made a deposit with Tidy Bingo between 1st June and 18th August 2015. Below is the email that is to be sent to the affected and eligible players in the next day or so. Unfortunately, you do need to contact support to request the change BUT should you have any issues getting it done, please contact us on team@tidybingo.com.

Well it would seem that ‘tickleme’ was not as forthcoming with her 10 things as we might have hoped, we’re still waiting to read her interesting facts! That said, we do forgive her a little bit because she does have a little ‘un to run around after so she can take a rain check for now!

Extra Tidy Millions Offer – One Day Only!

Monday, Mar. 23rd 2015 10:32 PM

If you are a regular at Tidy Bingo then you will know all about the Tidy Millions promotion, if you aren’t then it is worth checking out all the details on the promotions page under the ‘Exclusives’ heading.

Friday is Mega Friday for the Euromillions lottery and that means as well as the jackpot (the amount won’t be known until after tomorrow night’s draw) there will be not one but TEN Millionaire Maker codes draw. As a little bonus we have made the decision to buy a couple of extra tickets for the Tidy Millions promotion for the Friday draw (usually we only play it on a Tuesday).

Chat Room Changes At Tidy Bingo

Monday, Mar. 9th 2015 6:52 PM

By now you will no doubt have noticed the changes in chat at Tidy Bingo, the fact that there is now just one chat room that caters for all the rooms that are open. Whilst we understand why the 15 Network have made this decision, we also know that for some it’s not something that will sit very well.

For players as a whole it means a couple of things – firstly that the chat games played will no longer be number based which is a good thing, it means no more game winner chat game winner scenarios! It also means though that many of the chat games played will become more ‘fastest finger’ type games – great for the Speedy Gonzalez types amongst us, but for the sloths – not so good.

Second Donation Made To Help For Heroes

Monday, Oct. 20th 2014 3:55 PM

As a player at Tidy Bingo and someone who reads our blog the chances are you will be well aware of how Tidy and The Troops works and what the promotion is all about. Bear with is though, not all players have been with us since we launched in August 2013 so we will explain a little more.

Tidy and The Troops is a special promotional game that plays every Tuesday night at 7pm. Tickets for the game cost just 25p each and the jackpot if guaranteed at £50. Rather than keeping any profit over and above the jackpot that may or not be made on the game, Tidy Bingo have opted to donate all proceeds from ticket sales over £50 to Help For Heroes (the maths is that we need to sell 200 tickets to create the jackpot, anything over this is added to the kitty).

Monday, Sep. 15th 2014 8:07 PM

On 19th September there is to be a change to Team Bingo. The first change is the name, it will be known as Dream Team Bingo from that date. The other changes we will explain in a moment along with details of how you can claim a £5 bonus. Now this bonus is restricted to a first come first served basis and being offered to players across the network. There are to be just 20 of the £5 bonuses given away in total across the 15 Network and we want Tidyers to be in there claiming them!

The bonus is to be given to the first 20 players to register for Dream Team Bingo BUT you cannot email in until the 19th September when the content for the promotion is live on the site.

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 Bash Changes

Wednesday, Aug. 20th 2014 9:57 AM

Many of you who have been with Tidy since the beginning will be well aware of the exclusive promotions that we offer to our players. The same cannot be said of those who don’t read the blog or check out the promotional pages on the site. Whilst we would love it if everyone got to know their way around the site, we understand that different people have different expectations of their bingo experience.

For this reason we have chosen to open the Birthday Bash promotion up to a wider Tidy Bingo audience by a slight change in the rules to get in the draw. We removed the requirement to pop along to the Tidy Cupboard and repeat a promotional phrase, it’s apparent that this hasn’t had the desired effect and enticed more into our standalone room.
