With another CS:GO Major in the bag, we’ve updated the highest-earning CSGO pro players of all time. While Danish players still dominate the top spots when it comes to earnings, other stars are surging behind them to cut the lead.
Back in 2018, Astralis stars Nicolai ‘dev1ce’ Reedtz, Peter ‘dupreeh’ Rasmussen and Andreas ‘Xyp9x’ Højsleth became the first CS:GO stars to ever break the $1 million threshold in prize money won.
Since then, they have been joined by countless other players in the millionaires’ club, which now features as many as 24 members.
Astralis have given up their stranglehold on every tournament, and their dominant lineup is no longer around, as dupreeh and Magisk try to create a new dynasty with Vitality. However, four of those five players still dominate the list of the highest-earning stars in the game.
24 players have now broken $1 million each
While Astralis were the first to break the $1 million ceiling, there are now 24 players in the millionaires’ club. This includes the core of the old SK-Luminosity squad, as well as four of NAVI’s players.
Nineteen-year-old Valeriy ‘b1t’ Vakhovskiy, who became a full-fledged NAVI player in December 2020, surpassed the $1 million mark after the IEM Rio Major.

Estonian star Robin ‘ropz’ Kool is the latest addition to CS:GO’s millionaires’ club following FaZe’s triumph in ESL Pro League 17, which also netted the team the $1 million Intel Grand Slam prize. Each member on FaZe won $240,000 as a result, propelling Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard into the top 10 and putting in-game leader Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen just $100,000 away from the top 5.
In October 2022, dupreeh became the first CS:GO player to break the $2 million mark in tournament winnings when he won ESL Pro League 16 in Malta.
Who is the richest CS:GO player of all time?
dupreeh has taken over former Astralis teammate Xyp9x as CS:GO’s highest earner of all time in prize money. And given Astralis’ struggles, the 30-year-old Dane’s grip on the top spot is tightening as he is now more than $50,000 ahead of the ‘Clutch Minister’.
s1mple is the only non-Danish player in the top five. The Ukrainian superstar walked into this elite list in large part thanks to NAVI’s success in 2021, when the team won a series of international titles, including the PGL Stockholm Major.
