USCIS has conducted the H-1B visa lottery but results are still largely unknown.  About a third more petitions than H1B visas available were received and those cases which were expedited at an additional cost of $1225 are the first to be receipted, indicating they have “won” the lottery.  Cases filed for regular processing have generally not yet been receipted nor have any rejections yet been issued.  It’s likely to take another week or so for the true picture to emerge.
