You can use your actual losses but only up to the $2000 of winnings reported on that W2g. You also need to have kept a log of your gambling so you can show that if audited.
The win/loss statement would not be enough.
You should report your wins on 1040 as they are reported on the W2g and on your Schedule A you can only claim up to your winning amount on the losses.
