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).

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…..

Mini Games Arrive At Tidy

Wednesday, Jun. 11th 2014 3:27 PM

Tidy Bingo are pleased to announced (not quite as pleased as we would have been to announce mobile play) that we have a new feature available at the site, one that will appeal to those players who love a little reel action on the slots. As of today we are now able to offer you mini games, the ability to play a selection of your favourite slots AND play bingo at the same time.

Not all of the slot games that we offer are available to play in the bingo rooms, just a handful. We’ve had a little play and to be honest, we like them BUT we don’t think they are going to be utilised too much by the players who love a bit of banter in the chat room. Open up a mini game and the chat room is miniscule, certainly not conducive to holding a decent conversation.

Thank You From Help For Heroes

Monday, May. 19th 2014 11:13 AM

As a regular player at Tidy Bingo then you will be well aware that each and every Tuesday we host a game called Tidy and The Troops. You’ll also know that the money from tickets sold above the 200 required to make the £50 jackpot is added to a kitty that is then donated to Help For Heroes. To date we have raised over £500 and just recently we made our first donation.

Our first donation was for £467.75 and we have just received our thank you letter from Help For Heroes. As you are the people who have raised the money, it’s only right you get to pat yourselves on the back too.

Tidy Cupboard Changes

Thursday, Apr. 24th 2014 6:03 PM

We wanted to take the time to keep all of our Tidyers up to date with a recent decision that David and I have reached with regard to the Tidy Cupboard. The room opened on Tuesday 25th February and we had high hopes for it with the expectation that Tidyers would welcome the chance to interact with us and other players at the site. However, whilst we have had continued support from a number of die hard fans (for which we are extremely grateful), there have been no newcomers to the room for a little while now.

For this reason we have decided to reduce the number of nights that the room is open. This Friday (25th April) will be the last Friday that the Tidy Cupboard is open. From next week the room will only be open on a Tuesday.

Tidy Quiz And Holiday News

Thursday, Apr. 10th 2014 1:10 PM

On Saturday my wonderful hubby, my daughter, her boyfriend and myself will be off to sunny Dorset for a week. Some of you already know but in July the family are relocating back down south and the next week will be spent house hunting. This means no Tidy Quiz as scheduled for 11th. What we will do is reschedule for 25th and more than double the prize, instead of £2 there will be £5 cash for all correct answers on the Tidy Quiz of 25th April.

The Tidy Cupboard will be left in the capable hands of CM Blondie so there will be plenty of banter in the room on Tuesday 15th and Friday 18th (just as there always is).

Tidy Quiz – 28th March 2014

Friday, Mar. 28th 2014 12:27 AM

It doesn’t seem like it was two weeks ago that we did the last quiz, time really is flying lately. It has been though and this means another is due today – a quiz where you can earn £2 cash just for answering five questions correctly.

As is always the case, the five questions posed won’t be general knowledge but are questions whose answers can be found here on the blog, over on the Facebook page or generally around the Tidy Bingo site. We try not to make them too difficult, it’s just a bit of fun. Ask your fellow roomies in the Tidy Cupboard tonight, we’re sure that they will help you out if you are stuck.

Why Play In The Tidy Cupboard?

Sunday, Mar. 23rd 2014 4:00 PM

As our readers will know we have our very own standalone room at Tidy Bingo. We’re the first (and currently the only) site on the 15 Network to offer this but we need your help to make it a success. At this point in time we have just a handful of our members who utilise the room but we want to see more Tidyer’s come and join in the fun we have each and every Tuesday and Friday.

What we need from you though is feedback as to what would make you more likely to come and play in the room? At Tidy Bingo we are open to suggestions from our players and have an email address where you can contact both David and myself, team@tidybingo.com.

Tidy and The Troops Game – An Update

Wednesday, Mar. 5th 2014 2:08 PM

Last night saw only the second Tidy and the Troops guaranteed jackpot game take place (it should have been the third but a technical glitch meant the game didn’t run on Friday 28th). The first game played on 25th February and we sold an impressive 519 tickets, 319 over and above the 200 required to break even. This meant that £79.75 was added to the Troops kitty which can be checked here.

As we said, the 28th February’s game didn’t take place because of technical hitch but in order that the worthy cause didn’t miss out, David and I dipped our hands into our pockets and added £50 to the kitty anyway.

Fun And Frolics In The Tidy Cupboard

Wednesday, Feb. 26th 2014 12:07 AM

After quite a build up to the opening of the Tidy Cupboard I was a bit nervous last night. 7pm rolled around and as I started my first shift as a CM in our standalone room, just one player was in the room and that was a friend of mine who popped along for moral support. A few more players joined over the next 30 minutes and it wasn’t long before the banter got into full swing.

We played a few chat games before the Clean The Bog tournament got underway, more banter ensued. The winner was Voddi_N_Redbull although ScaryMary322 wasn’t far behind. It all came down to a toothbrush!

Coming Soon To Tidy Bingo

Friday, Jan. 17th 2014 5:21 PM

Here at Tidy HQ David and I are getting a little excited, February is going to be a really exciting month at Tidy Bingo because we are going to launch our very own standalone room! Towards the end of the month you should see a new room appear in the lobby when you are logged into the site, a room called the Tidy Cupboard.

The Tidy Cupboard will only be open twice a week from 7pm until 11pm on a Tuesday and a Friday but it will be a room only accessible to Tidy players. The room will be hosted for the full four hours by none other than ME! Yes, I’m going to be the host and the last few weeks I’ve spent creating some unique tournament and promotions to focus around our very own room.
