I just had a quick question that I hope someone can answer. Does anyone know what the distribution of the sum of discrete uniform random variables is? Is it a normal distribution?

The distribution is asymptotically normal. Otherwise, the exact distribution is that of a normalized extended binomial coefficient, see "Polynomial Coefficients and Distribution of the Sum of Discrete Uniform Variables" by Camila C. S.
