POINTS = ((2^66 - 2^65)/2^65)*(332192831/332192831) = (2^65/2^65)*(1/1) = 1

With EXP = 3,321,928,319:

POINTS = ((2^66 - 2^65)/2^65)*(332192831/3321928319) = 0.099999999729073022180404248512022 = ~ 0.1
Eh... in his formula, the base of your factor would be 332192831, not 3321928319, and the exponent actually tested put on top.
