COMMENTS

This polynomial generates 30 primes in a row starting from n=0.

The polynomial 16*n^2 - 628*n + 6203 generates the same primes in reverse order.

I found in the same family of prime-generating polynomials (with the discriminant equal to -163*2^p, where p is even), the polynomials 4n^2 - 152n + 1607, generating 40 primes in row starting from n=0 (20 distinct ones) and 4n^2 - 140n + 1877, generating 36 primes in row starting from n=0 (18 distinct ones).

The following 5 (10 with their "reversal" polynomials) are the only ones I know from the family of Euler’s polynomial n^2 + n + 41 (having their discriminant equal to a multiple of -163) that generate more than 30 distinct primes in a row starting from n=0 (beside the Escott’s polynomial n^2 - 79n + 1601):

(1) 4n^2 - 154n + 1523 (4n^2 - 158n + 1601);

(2) 9n^2 - 231n + 1523 (9n^2 - 471n + 6203);

(3) 16n^2 - 292n + 1373 (16n^2 - 668n + 7013);

(4) 25n^2 - 365n + 1373 (25n^2 - 1185n + 14083);

(5) 16n^2 - 300n + 1447 (16n^2 - 628n + 6203).

Note: For the first 2 (4 with their reversals), already reported, see the link below to C. Rivera’s site.
