Yes, gambling losses are deductible, but only to the extent of gambling winnings! So, if you have $1500 of winnings from the slot machines, but have lost $2200 on the slots and tables, you can only deduct $1500 of the losses. The rest are lost.
If you have no gambling winnings, you cannot deduct any gambling losses.
I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, please let me know. I would be happy to answer! If you have found my answer helpful, please rate me highly. I would appreciate it!
Again, thanks! Have a great week!
