In the last decade, video games have become big business, and many pro players make millions of dollars out of their profession. It's undeniable that Esports has become one of the most lucrative and fastest growing industries in the world.

The list of wealthiest eSport players in each separated game up until 2019 is out (based on prize money alone) and we bet you're curious just like us. So let's find out how much the world's top players are making in their job.

1# Liquid KuroKy

Liquid KuroKy
Net worth: $4,165,926

The German-born Dota 2 player Liquid’s Kuro ‘KuroKy’ Salehi Takhasomi has been making huge money from his profession in Dota 2. This guy is undoubtedly one of the wealthiest in the esports world.

In fact, Dota 2 players are well known for being the biggest earners in esports history. The International – annual tournament organized by Valve – has more prize money than any competition ever has.

KuroKy has been making big money as the captain of Team Liquid in the competition. But it was the TI 2017 that his career rose to fame, as a result of his outstanding record: never missing a single big event of Valve’s scheme and were always listed as top teams.

Being the first player to reach 1000 professional games, this guy deserves his title as esports top millionaire.

2# Astralis Xyp9x

Net worth: $1,453,191

Not just Dota, other players in other games are also well paid for their jobs. Andreas ‘Xyp9x’ Højsleth, a CSGO player, is the richest among his colleagues in CSGO.

This 1995 born might not be the superstar in the field from the beginning, but his career is a long and promising one. People began to notice this guy thanks the back-to-back Majors and IEM Grand Slam.

Alongside with dev1ce and dupreeh, Astralis Xyp9x’s team is the strongest one up-to-date, and there’s no evidence showing that someone’s going to replace them in the near future.

3# SKT Faker

Skt Faker
Net worth: $1,193,853

Leading the richest list in League of Legends is no one else but the South Korean born Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok. For the fans of LoL, it’s no surprise to hear this news since Faker has been long known as the most famous player in the game.

However, his income is still somewhere behind his colleagues in Dota and CSGO. Other than the huge prize money he has won, Faker also earns through endorsement and other sources from his fame as a celebrity.

It’s undeniable that Faker is the most legendary player in League of Legends, although this legend just lost the game to G2 on Friday. But he not yet lost the game as one big money maker.

4# Yoshimoto Libalent Feg

Net worth: $1,193,853

Yoshimoto Libalent Feg is a special case among other millionaires in the esports world. He’s the only person on this list that belongs to the mobile esports world, not PC esports world.

Shadowverse World Grand Prix 2018 was where he made most of his money. A smaller amount of about $3000 is made from other earnings.

The fact that Feg has broken the $1m mark of income in mobile esports has proven the truth that this kind of esports is growing and has potential very much. More and more people will enter mobile esports as it’s much easier to enter than PC esports. Hence, you might hear more and more about Feg in the future.

5# Jin Air Green Wings Maru

Jin Air Green Wings Maru
Net worth: $745,639

South Korea has its pride as it has 2 out of 5 players in this list. Other than SKT Faker, we have Cho ‘Maru’ Sung-choo. Maru is the youngest ever to play Starcraft 2.

Starcraft 2 is the original esports and existed long before esports rose to fame in North America or Europe. Among many other Korean pro players who are masters in this game, Maru is the legend in a legendary field.

# OpTic Crimsix

Optic Crimsix
Net worth: $714,284

There’s always existed a gap between PC eSports players and console players in how much money they make but no worry; now we have Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter to shorten that gap.

OpTic Call of Duty has made this guy famous and of course – also brought him a lot of money (indeed the most successful player ever in the game). Having competed at the top level of Call of Duty eSports for almost ten years, Crimsix only has two lifelong partners: Scump and Karma. With the great mastery in the game, this American guy deserves his earning.
