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…..

Tidy Player Lands Network PJP

Friday, Sep. 4th 2015 5:24 PM

As regular readers of our blog will know, we love a good winner’s story and these aren’t limited to those that centre around our standalone room, the Cupboard. One of our players recently landed the network 90 ball progressive jackpot (PJP), no mean feat really considering the network requires you to win in 39 numbers or less, 6 numbers less than the 45 required for the Tidy exclusive progressive.

It was Tuesday 1st September, wolf67 had been playing along in the Cupboard when he thought he’d buy a few tickets in the Glitz and Glam network room. Tickets for the game he brought for cost just 2p each and wolf67 purchased just 39, a total cost of £0.78.

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.

World Smile Day Jackpot Results

Sunday, Oct. 5th 2014 10:26 PM

On Friday the biggest jackpot game at Tidy Bingo since we launched on 21st August 2013 was played and we thought you might be interested to hear about the winners of the game and how Tidyers in general faired. If we are honest, there wasn’t that many of our players who even bothered buying a ticket so we’d be interested to hear what it was about the game that didn’t get your bingo juices flowing?

Was it the price of the tickets or did you just believe, as a networked game, that you had little chance of winning? We’d love your feedback please.

Exclusive Progressive Jackpot at Tidy – A Few Stats

Wednesday, Sep. 17th 2014 2:29 PM

Last night we saw our FIFTH progressive jackpot winner take home the exclusive jackpot in the Tidy Cupboard and whilst I’ve been writing the promotional news to celebrate and big up our brand on the Internet, I noticed how little is actually spent on tickets by the winners. That’s great for players and we thought we’d share the stats with you for the last five progressive winners, a little who did best for return on investment if you like.

So our very first winner was heidi2111 on 27th May, she won £80.53. The second winner was xxxBAZINGAxxx and her win came on 24th June and was worth £82.95. The third and fourth happened in one session of the Tidy Cupboard and saw billy0mates take home £93.29 followed by tickleme and her win of £77.48. The fifth win happened just yesterday and this time it was the turn of tytyj who landed £79.76.

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.

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!

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!

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!
