Tidy Savers Update – August 2016

Posted by on: Thursday, Aug. 4th 2016 11:52 AM

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!

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…..

Additional Tidy And The Troops / Help For Heroes Bonus

Tuesday, Mar. 10th 2015 7:01 AM

For regulars in the Cupboard you’ll be aware that this change was coming to our Tidy and The Troops feature. For non-regulars, we have some exciting news about a little incentive to encourage players to participate in our Tidy and the Troops game each and every Tuesday at 7pm, like a £50 guaranteed jackpot is not enough?

Every ticket you buy for the Tidy and the Troops game from tomorrow has a little more value than a) your chance of winning a share of a £50 guaranteed b) a donation to a very worthy cause, Help For Heroes. For your money you also get the chance to win a Help For Heroes hoody or t-shirt each and every month.

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).

80 Million Reasons To Play In The Tidy Cupboard

Wednesday, Sep. 24th 2014 9:50 AM

On Friday 3rd October 2014 it is World Smile Day and the 15 Network is hosting a big money jackpot game for an impressive £2,500 prize pool. Tickets are on sale now at £1 each and for that price you could get a share of the bounty even if you aren’t actually a winner. Tidy Bingo want to make their players grin from ear to ear that day and whilst you are hoping to be a winner in the World Smile Day game, you’ll want to make sure you have been in the Cupboard (our standalone room) on the Tuesday prior (30th September)…..

Regulars in the Tidy Bingo Cupboard will know of the Tidy Millions promotion, your chance to take a share of any winnings generated from a Euromillions ticket we purchase for the Tuesday night. Get your name in the syndicate for the 30th September and you’ll be getting a little more than you expected. We are going to do you a little deal, a buy one get one free if you like. As well as the World Smile Day jackpot on World Smile Day there is an £80 million Superdraw for the Euromillions and we are going to have tickets for the Tidy Millions in that draw too as a bonus.

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.

Thinking Caps On Again

Sunday, Apr. 6th 2014 12:05 AM

This competition was won by Dippydee1.


It’s been a week or so now since the winner of the last Catchphrase competition was announced, time for another we think! We’re still not getting as many entries as you might think and those we do enter and maybe get one wrong, they’re given a reply by email and the chance to rectify their error. Remember, these competitions only cost 25p to enter and not only could you win the prize on offer, but a share of the £50 guaranteed jackpot game called Tidy and The Troops.

To be eligible to win this Catchphrase Competition you must have purchased at least one ticket in the Tidy and The Troops game between now and 22nd April at 23:59.

Say What You See – Another ‘Free’ Competition

Tuesday, Mar. 18th 2014 12:35 AM

The ‘Say What You See’ Catchphrase competitions that we run on Facebook have certainly proved popular with players so we thought it about time that we get another underway. We don’t usually put any entry requirements on these free promotions but this one is a little different – it’s only open to players who have bought at least one ticket in the Tidy And The Troops games between now and 28th March.

There is a good reason for this, and a good cause of course – we want to sell more tickets for the Tidy and The Troops games so that we can raise more money for the Help For Heroes charity! This means that actually it will cost you 25p to enter this competition, not a bad price and all for a good cause!

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.
