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…..

Hi Honey, I’m Home!

Saturday, Feb. 22nd 2014 2:01 PM

Did you guys miss me? I’m finally back in the UK after a lovely week in Turkey but it’s back to the grindstone the minute I walked in the door! The Loved Up leaderboard had to be updated (we have a new leader now) and the Tidy Lotto numbers had to be checked, the new promotions for March had to be created and the prizes bought and that’s all in the last few hours! But you know what, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I’m like a kid at Christmas with excitement at the moment, only a couple more days and the standalone room opens. I hope you all plan to join me for the first session in the Tidy Cupboard on Tuesday? Who knows how it is all going to go, it has been a while since I’ve had my chat host hat on!

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.

Twice As Nice is one of those promotions and the Slots Weekender is the other. We have now been sent the full list of winners for the weekend just past so we’d like a virtual drum roll please as we look at the Tidyers who got lucky.

Santa’s Sack Winners

Tuesday, Jan. 7th 2014 4:24 PM

Forgive my lackadaisical attitude over the last few days; I am still trying to get back into the swing of work after the festive season! Part of that festive season was the Santa’s Sack promotion and I have to say, I had great fun running the whole thing. It didn’t matter that for 24 nights I was burning the midnight oil to draw winners and post the next day’s competition, I absolutely loved it and I really hope that you did too.

I’ve got my thinking hat on now for a love themed promotion so keep your eyes out for that next month. Of course if you have any suggestions, feel free to email them in to team@tidybingo.com or leave them as a comment on Facebook or here on the blog. However, before we move from January to February I thought I’d run through the list of winners and their prizes from the Santa’s Sack promotion.

Sam Bailey Is Victorious!

Sunday, Dec. 15th 2013 10:25 PM

Over the past few months we’ve watched the X Factor religiously and tonight a winner was announced. For Sam Bailey this means a record deal and potentially a Christmas number one, for quite a few Tidy players this means a share of a £500 bonus prize pool. On 12th October all of our players who had deposited by 8pm that evening were allocated an act who had made it to the X Factor live shows. At this point Tidy Factor kicked off and each week when an act leaves the show, a few Tidyer’s left the Tidy Factor.

Bad luck to all those players who were allocated Nicholas McDondald, sadly there are 1TG prizes in the Tidy Factor.

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.

The Emptying Has Begun!

Monday, Dec. 2nd 2013 7:21 AM

Yesterday was the first day of the Santa’s Sack promotion and up for grabs was a Doctor Who Tardis Mug complete with a lid. To get your name into the prize draw to win the mug you simply had to win on the D, E or C pattern and then your name was in our virtual hat. Now we want to share with you the story of the draw – how we randomise the winners AND how easy it is to win.

Firstly we will tell you how we ensure that the draw is random. Each valid entry is entered onto a spreadsheet and allocated a number – 1 to however many entries there are. When the clock strikes midnight the draw is closed and each qualifying player has been allocated a number. I then ask my husband, my daughter or a friend to pick any number from 1 to [insert number of entries]. The person choosing the number cannot see the list, they are simply giving me a number and the corresponding player becomes the day’s winner.
