This prime was found 12/15/2005, but not announced until 12/25/2005 so that it could first be verified by Tony Reix of Bull S.A. in Grenoble, France using 16 Itanium2 1.5 GHz CPUs of a Bull NovaScale 6160 HPC at Bull Grenoble Research Center, running the Glucas program by Guillermo Ballester Valor of Granada, Spain. See notes.

Chris Caldwell writes (11 Sep 2014): 
The number of 0's, 1's, ... 9's in the decimal expansion are respectively: 913468, 914272, 916362, 913997, 914191, 916441, 915744, 915905, 916856, and 914816.

Chris Caldwell writes (18 Jan 2015): 
Every Mersenne number less than this one has been checked once for primality by GIMPS (by December 25, 2010), and the a second time (January 25, 2013). Single checks have a relatively high error rate (a couple percent), but after a second check the residues from the two checks can be compared so the the error rate is extremely small.

Verification data:

The Top 5000 Primes is a list for proven primes only. In order to maintain the integrity of this list, we seek to verify the primality of all submissions.  We are currently unable to check all proofs (ECPP, KP, ...), but we will at least trial divide and PRP check every entry before it is included in the list.
