My colege DSO gave me a Vermont EAC number ? Does it mean i got picked up on the lottery

My employer is saying niether the cheque got cashed , nor he recieved my reciept? What the reciept my college DSO given mean?

Does i got picked up in lottery?

YES. If you get a EAC number which is nothing but receipt number, as you state, your case has been selected. Next step is pending with USCIS for review. Congrats! You won the lottery.!
