Participants of the DV lottery must check their status on the government site https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/  using their Confirmation number, Last/Family Name and Year of Birth . So don’t lose your confirmation number. The Kentucky Consular centre does not notify winners  through postal mail or email. If you receive mails or phone calls that you have won the lottery, you should know that that information is fake.
