COMMENTS

Equivalently, binomial(n!+n,n). Proof: (n!+1)(n!+2)...(n!+k) == k! mod n! == 0 mod n! if and only if k >= n (for n >= 2). - _Paul D Hanna_ and Robert Israel, Aug 31 2010.

Note that k <= n. Subsidiary sequence to be investigated: n such that k < n.

This is just a coincidence, but k=2,6,84 are also such that floor(exp(1)*10^k) is a prime, cf. A064118. - M. F. Hasler, Aug 31 2013
