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!

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…..

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?

Off To Ireland, Don’t Miss Me Too Much

Monday, Oct. 19th 2015 11:00 AM

As you’re all probably aware, it’s half-term next week and with my youngest only a few months from hitting 18, I’m trying to make the most of the last few times she’s likely to want to holiday with her Mum. Ibiza, Magaluf etc. they will soon be far more interesting for her!

We’re off to Ireland on Wednesday and this will have a tiny, almost insignificant impact on you guys. Whilst I am away, the Witchy Winners leaderboard will not be updated daily. In fact, the last update will be done on the morning of 21st October 2015. As soon as I get back (29th October), all scores from the previous week will be added to the leaderboard.

Read All About It

Thursday, May. 14th 2015 12:11 AM

Extra, extra – Read All About It. Nickie and David have decided to throw in an awesome extra prize to add on to the network Read All About It Promotion that is playing at all sites on the network. As you will already known if you read the promotions pages you could win a Kindle Fire HD7, and magazine subscriptions to OK, Cosmo, Glamour and Heat.

On top of this all Tidyers will be entered into prize draw with a chance to win a fab t-shirt from the For Reading Addicts shop as long as you have deposited £20 over the promo period (14th – 23rd May). Because of this I thought I’d pop on over to the website and have a nosey for you.

10 Things You May Not Know About David

Tuesday, May. 12th 2015 12:05 AM

Ok, it’s my turn to put fingers to keyboard and take a look into my murky past and tell you 10 things you never knew about me. Some of you might wonder who I am as I’m not as visible as my fellow Tidy peeps around the site, but I do a lot behind the scenes, helping keep things ticking over and the boring paperwork to try and justify my position as joint owner of Tidy Bingo.

So here we go, 10 things about me. And when you see a couple of these, it might help to explain why I’m not so visible around here!

10 Things You May Not Know About Nickie

Monday, May. 4th 2015 7:59 AM

Continuing on from the theme of 10 Things You May Not Know about people at Tidy Bingo, it would seem it is my turn today! I was really interested to read CM Blondie’s 10 things and actually, it really does make you think how little you know about people. Some of what she had said I already knew of course (I first met her nearly 10 years ago at a meet arranged by members of the site she was in an advert for).

Her 10 things also got me thinking how boring my life is in comparison, although sometimes the story line has been a lot like an Eastenders plot! Oh well, here goes nothing….

10 Things You May Not Know About Blondie

Friday, May. 1st 2015 7:33 AM

Many of you have known me for quite a few years now as for the past 10 years I’ve been hanging around on one bingo site or another making myself known and bringing with me my unique style of Blondie banter. Some of you have only met me recently through Tidy Bingo and hopefully my typonese hasn’t put you off too much so far.

But what weird and wonderful facts about me did I think you may not know. Some may surprise you, some may make you laugh but one things for sure they are all me!

Prize Delivery Delays – March 2015

Saturday, Mar. 21st 2015 12:50 PM

For a week at the end of March I am away on my holidays and for players this means a couple of things. Firstly, the Tidy Cupboard session of 31st March will not be hosted by me, instead you will be looked after by the soon to be permanent fixture on a Friday night, the lovely CM Blondie! She’ll be announcing the Birthday Bash, First Timers Freebie and Roomie of the Month winners for March on that night too!

It is the prizes and their delivery that are going to be affected most by my little holiday, there will be a slight delay unfortunately. Winners of the Mum’s The Word promotion, David’s Weekend Fun Pack, Birthday Bash, Roomie of The Month and First Timers Freebie will have to wait until my return on 6th April for their prizes to be despatched.

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….
