He may not have won Tuesday's Mega Millions  jackpot, but Warren Buffett probably doesn't care.

The investing genius made an eye-popping $37  million a day in 2013 - that's $1.5 million an hour - simply watching the shares  in his conglomerate soar by more than 25 per cent.

The Berkshire Hathaway boss' net worth  bounced $12.7 billion to $59.1 billion over the period, making him the  billionaire who made the most cash this year, according to a new  survey.

 
 

But even with his staggering money-making,  Buffett, who lives a notoriously humble existence despite his billions, only  came second on the list of the world's Top 10 richest people, compiled by  Wealth-X.

 

 

Microsoft founder and chairman Bill Gates  took the top spot for another year, with a total net worth of $72.6 billion, up  from $61.1 billion in 2012.

Gates' impressive gain saw him come second to  Buffett in the gains stakes, and in third place was casino mogul Sheldon  Adelson, who's worth an estimated $35.3 billion this year after raking in $11.4  billion from his gambling houses in Las Vegas, Macau and Singapore.
