H1B Status: Please Help

Help Needed.

I filed H1B as a future employee with a client. A recent update from the client stated that the application got picked, but he is hesitant to provide the receipt number.

Yesterday, I asked my DSO if there is an update on my SEVIS. As per the reply, there is no update to my SEVIS record.

Is there any other way to know if my application got picked? Please help
