Your gambling winnings will still show up as income.  Your gambling losses will show on Schedule A as part of the rest of your itemized deductions.

Gambling winnings are taxable income.  Losses are an itemized deduction.  If you do not have enough itemized deductions to exceed your standard deduction, your losses will have no effect.
