Mikado FAQs

Q: What is a PAM?

A: PAM is short for Player Account Management system and is commonly used in the gaming industry to describe the technology that sits at the heart of an operation recording all the player transactions, providing a central platform for all products to integrate on to, providing insights (via reporting) and tools to interact with and understand player behaviour, management of player accounts, management of content and much more.

Q: How is Mikado different from other platforms in the market?

A: Mikado is designed so you are the master of your own destiny – providing flexibility and extensibility unmatched by any other PAM, underpinned by cutting edge technologies and infrastructure ensuring robustness and reliability.  This flexibility not only applies to the technology itself, but also how we work with you commercially – where you have the option to own the code yourself and be in control of your platform or engage with us providing the software-as-a-service.  Finally our software has been designed by professional UI designers with user experience at the forefront – leading to a sleek, intuitive system that puts key, actionable information at your fingertips.

Q: What markets and jurisdictions do you support?

A: We are live with UKGC and Curacao clients, with other markets coming soon.  Contact Us to find out the latest list of supported jurisdictions.

A: No matter your ambition, we can support all verticals. From casino to sportsbook to bingo, Mikado has you covered. Our philosophy is to provide an adaptable ‘chassis’ from we can build upon.

With Mikado, you have the freedom to choose the offerings and related technology which delivers on your vision today, safe in the knowledge that it’s ready to support tomorrow’s vision.

Q: How quickly can I go live with the Mikado PAM?

Q: How does code ownership work?

A: One of our commercial options is you can purchase a copy of the code, owning the IP and adding to your enterprise value.

Q: If I don’t want to own the code myself, can you provide a SaaS model?

Q: Can the PAM be customised?

A: Absolutely! The software has been designed from the ground up with customisation and extensibility in mind using modern technological best practices. Mikado essentially becomes your bespoke platform – this is not a typical white-label “one size fits all” solution. 

Q: Do you have a front-end website or can you build us one?

A: Build your own front-end, use one of our templates or have us build your vision. The choice is yours.
