The results of ohnePixel’s $130,000 case opening spree

Reading time: 2 min

ohnePixel used $130,000 of cases for a highly-publicized opening stream, and the results are heartbreaking.

Rare Counter-Strike: Global Offensive capsules have become one of the hottest commodities in any digital economy, with the rarest of them all costing upwards of $20,000. ohnePixel lucked into a couple of those exact ones, along with over $80,000 worth of weapon skin crates thanks to a mysterious donor, and he decided to open them all on stream for the people to see.

Here are the results of ohnePixel’s $100,000 case opening, the biggest CSGO gambling spree of all time.

First, the stream consisted of the following cases and capsules. Combined, ohnePixel estimated their value at around $130,000. Here’s how it was broken down:

  • 8 Cologne 2014 sticker capsules
  • 89 Operation Bravo cases
  • 78 CSGO Weapon cases
  • 40 Cobblestone souvenir packages
  • 1 Katowice 2014 Legends capsules
  • 1 Katowice 2014 Challengers capsules

Did ohnePixel profit from his $130,000 case opening?

ohnePixel opened essentially nothing good from his $130,000 case opening, making it both the biggest CSGO case opening stream as well as the biggest CSGO hosing of all time.

For the case opening portion, ohnePixel opened exactly one skin worth over $200. One of the CSGO Weapon cases contained a field-tested StatTrak™ AK-47 | Case Hardened pattern 425. It’s not a terrible pattern, and it has some blue on the top and magazine, but it’s certainly no gem. The other two non-StatTrak™ Case Hardeneds weren’t particularly special, though the highest-float one had a solid amount of visible blue.

As for the Katowice 2014 capsules, ohnePixel got blown out of the water. The $40,000 combined opening was the grand finale of the event, and he pulled a Reason Gaming paper and Ninjas in Pyjamas paper. The former is worth around $2,700 while the latter is just $375, according to Cantry.dev.

ohnePixel estimates his return to be around $5,500, meaning a total loss of $124,500. This is further proof that no matter how lucky you may be, it is incredibly unlikely to profit from opening cases of any rarity. While it is theoretically possible for ohne to have pulled nothing but blue gem AKs, souvenir Dragon Lores, and top-tier holos, he’s likely to have made more money from Twitch subscriptions than all of his new skins combined.
