Additional Comments

I installed Smite in its own WINEPREFIX under a WINEARCH of win32.

I used winetricks to install d3dx10 d3dx11_43 d3dx9_43 directx9 dotnet40 gdiplus vcrun2008 vcrun2010 xact wininet.

I launched SmiteInstall.exe
Installing the pre-requisites took a couple attempts of manually running the installers in the game files and restarting the client a couple times.

Note: To launch Smite from HirezLauncherUI.exe, pass 'game=300 product=17' to Wine. Such as 'wine "path/to/HirezLauncherUI.exe" game=300 product=17'. The reason for this is becase Hi Rez uses the same launcher for their entire library(Paladins, Smite, etc.) and passes those variables to the launcher to determine what product to present to the user.

64-bit prefix

Hi again. Winetricks from current git can install dotnet40 on a 64-bit prefix. I confirmed it works with the Smite installer on the non-Steam version.
I needed an additional winetrick

What Sybil has written is spot on. As long as the listed winetricks are installed, especially dotnet40 in a 32-bit Windows XP prefix, the game will eventually install. I had to kill processes during prerequisites install 5+ times, but eventually it got through.

However, I also had to add another registry tweak so that I could completely rotate my character: winetricks grabfullscreen=y

Performance is a little lower than on Windows, but as I have an Intel HD 4000, you might not notice too much with beefier hardware. Also, I was too afraid to test the new D3D 11 in-game option. ;)
