In the UK this has the exact opposite meaning to that in the USA.

In other words Lucked Out means you were unlucky ( a much more obvious meaning to my mind)

I guess it comes from the phrase 'Shit outta luck' which can of course be used ironcally and thus carry both meanings.

Depending on the type of luck you are refering to, i.e. good or bad, this phrase either implies a positive or negative statement. It implies that you recieved as much luck as was possible whether it be good or bad, aka you rode your luck untill it ran out, or simply just ran out of luck.

It should never be 'lucked in' as that just doesn't make any sense!

'Nah, I lucked out with the weather today' - Was not able to play tennis due to huge rainfall.
