Hi,
Ticks can not be used with BarChart because they refer to coordinates
of the whoe Plot not to bars.
Here is a workaround where we put corresponding labels below the bars:

s = Sum[Binomial[100, k], {k, 0, 100}];
slist = Table[Binomial[100, k], {k, 0, 100}];
labellist = Table[k, {k, 0, 100, 25}];
i = 0;
BarChart[N[slist/s],
 LabelingFunction -> (If[Mod[++i, 25] == 0, Placed[i, Below], ""] &)]
