    In most cases, app removal software such as AppCleaner doesn't do a thorough job of deleting files/folders related to deleted apps. For more information, read this.

    The most effective method for complete app removal is manual deletion:

    I installed a game in wine on my Mac, and this is where my program files are stored, not sure if the folder names will be the same for you

    Library/Application Support/Wine/prefixes

    The applications that you have installed should be in there, you can delete the entire folder and it will erase the program files for that application.
