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.
Shit! I lucked out on that promotion. I did't get it!
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!
