How it works?
digits on your ticket must match in the correct order, from the left, to win.
See an example lottery draw with two ticket-scenarios, A & B
Ticket A: The first 3 digits match the winning number, and the last 2 digits match the winning number, but the 4th digit does not match, so this ticket wins a "match first 3" prize.
Ticket B: Even though the last 5 digits are a match, the first digit does not match, so this is not a winning ticket.
Prize brackets do not stack: So example- the first 3 digits on your ticket are a match - you win the prize from "match 3", but not "match 1" and "match 2".

How winning number is decided?
Through VRF Output and Slot Leader.
Verifiable Random Function (VRF) is used to choose a random validator every epoch. When a Ouroboros epoch is under way, each validating node (staking pool or solo validator) generates a random hash using the private part of the VRF key. The VRF then outputs a random number along with a proof. Each node then keeps this generated number secret until the epoch finishes. Once the epoch is through, everyone exchanges their generated numbers with each other. This forms a list of random numbers. During the next epoch each staking pool checks the random number against their own secret key. If the number matches its own, the node then generates and broadcasts a block.
This way, no one knows which node is chosen to produce a block. Slot leader is nothing but the hash of the selected stake pool which produces the block.
We leverage this on chain randomness to obtain this number from the slot leader (stake pool) and VRF output of the block right next to the current block which contains the transaction for this Winning Number NFT. The winning number is selected by taking the first digit of slot leader hash + first 5 numbers from the VRF output hash in a left to right manner.
