The winners weren't at a slot machine -- but a gas pump.

A Louisiana casino celebrated its 14th anniversary yesterday, by allowing drivers to buy gas for a buck-40 a gallon.

The Horseshoe Casino in Bossier City comped the first 1,000 lucky motorists to the cut-rate fuel.

Police directed traffic as people descended on the service station.

The bargain hunters paid cash at a parking near the gas station, then pulled up to the pumps for a maximum of 10 gallons.
