Default Fun Sequence

I've started searching this sequence for prime numbers:
((n+1)\mathrm{!}\ - \ n\mathrm{!})k + 1

I like this sequence because N-1 is easy to factor so proving primality is straight forward.

Are there any faster primality tests than rabin-miller for numbers like this?

Has anyone searched a sequence similar to this?
