Where do I enter gambling losses with letter from casino - not w2g

The letter will suffice.

To enter gambling losses, you must have gambling winnings to deduct them against.  You can only deduct losses to the extent of your winnings and then only if you itemize.

To deduct gambling losses:

1.  Go to Less Common Income.

2.  Go to Gambling Winnings.

3.  Enter your winnings, then a few screens later you see a place to input your losses.

I won some in 2017.Ilost more in 2016. Can I use that casino statement from 2016 to prove I lost the same amount or more the previous year ?

Your losses for 2016 are irrelevant to your 2017 tax return.  They do not carry over.
