What does not
Can't connect to internet, so you can't log in, or install games.
What was not tested
No actual games tested, or loaded
So far I have found no work arounds. It installs fine under both Wine, and PlayOnLinux. The client loads just fine. When trying to log in it hangs, and never logs in. Since you can't log in, you can't retrieve your data, so no games can be installed, even when downloaded on their own.

Run winetricks -q ie6 before installation.
Bug 20651 - WBEM/WMI not implemented
Due to Bug 20651 some of the games will report that the trial has finished as soon as it has downloaded. To work around this you will have to run the command for the game directly. For example:
wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Farm\ Frenzy\ -\ Gone\ Fishing/FarmFrenzyGoneFishing.exe
This is a hint for those who have a Windows installation of the Big Fish Games. Originally suggested by Booman.
Just copy the installed game folders from your Windows system (usually under C:\Program Files; or as you chose during the initial installation of the client) to the WINE virtual drive (to C:\Program Files again or to the base directory you chose during the initial installation of the client on WINE).
Then run WINE with e. g. "wine C:\\Program Files\\Azkend\\Azkend.exe" and you should be able to play the game.
