Michael Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Today we will look at an idiom which means being fortunate or suddenly lucky. You can use luck out in both situations. Here’s an example of being suddenly lucky:

  • I lucked out at the train station. I got there late, but the train was also late so I was able to catch it.
  • The show was sold out, but I lucked out at the box office. When I went there, they had a sudden cancellation, so I could get the last ticket.

You can also luck out when you play a game or gamble:

  • Joe lucked out in Vegas playing blackjack.
  • I have never been able to luck out when betting on a horse race.
