PlayonLinux is frontend application for Wine. You need to install playonlinux through ubuntu software center.
PlayOnLinux uses Wine to install these programs, so you aren’t getting some half-assed emulation here—this is just a way to quickly and easily install your favorite apps from one simple menu. It has a ton of games, from Starcraft II to Portal to Mass Effect, plus other popular Windows apps like Microsoft Office. Essentially, it takes the technical, behind-the-scenes work and does it all for you, so you can get to using your apps. It’ll even install the best version of Wine for each app, meaning you always get the best experience possible.
Backtrack is not coming with ubuntu centre, you need to be install through
$apt-get install software-center
