Luckily is an adverb, meaning that it modifies a verb (that -ly ending always gives it away.) So you would use this word to describe an action.

Luckily he saw the dollar bill on the sidewalk. It was enough to buy the winning lottery ticket.

But the phrase "by luck" is also an adverb, and would replace "luckily": By luck, he saw the dollar bill on the sidewalk...

I looked these meanings up and there does appear to be a slight difference in meaning.
"Luckily" means "by good fortune."
"By luck" means "by accident."
