The month of March 2023 has been perhaps the most exciting for CS: GO players with the reveal of the highly anticipated successor Counter Strike 2. In another surprise, it was also the month when players of the popular first-person shooter opened the most number of cases set a new record for the highest amount of cases opened in a single month.

This article will tell you about the number of cases opened by CS GO players every month.

How many cases are opened per month?

According to the database collecting website CS: GO Case Tracker, players opened a whopping 39.5 million cases in the month of March 2023. Based on the relative cost of a single case, it translates to over $100 million spent on cosmetics in just a single month.

This is a huge boost from the previous highest record achieved in the month of February which saw players opening 27.7 million cases. Every case purchased also requires a key to open it which costs $2.50 with the cases themselves being available at varying prices.

Below we can take a look at the number of cases opened each month starting from January 2022:
