I don't know of any 64 bit wine packages, I could be incorrect but you may have to try to build it yourself for 64bit, or use a miltilib system.

If there is a 64bit wine package, make sure you use that one if it's what you need.

Well first you're going to need Alien Bob's multilib packages:

Or simply (as root in a terminal) type:

lftp -c 'open ; mirror 13.37
Then go to the directory where you put this. Assuming you didn't change directory already it should just be:
cd 13.37
upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new *.t?z
Then you have to change directory to the folder slackware64-compat32 which should come with it (if it doesn't the page gives more information on how to obtain the files in the folder slackware64-compat32).
cd slackware64-compat32
Then just upgrade the files in there:
upgradepkg --install-new *-compat32/*.t?z
Then after you've downloaded Wine (which it seems you already have), go the the directory you've placed that in and do:

installpkg wine-1.3.29.bla.bla.bla.txz
