Is platform parameter case-insensitive as PLATFORM env var?

The Environment variables list the PLATFORM variable:

PLATFORM - platform name set on Build tab of project settings (or through platform parameter in appveyor.yml);

Feodor confirmed in comment that

environment variables have been always case-insensitive.

But, is the platform parameter in appveyor.yml case-insensitive too?

In appveyor.yml matrix, which one is correct, upper-case?

    - PLATFORM: x64
or lower-case
    - platform: x64
or does not matter, because both variable & parameter are case-insensitive?

    It doesn't matter. Both lower- and upper-case should work.

    Fedor, thanks. So, both are case-insensitive. The explicit use of upper and lower case in the docs suggests the case may be relevant.
