  1. You'll need to include the entire sentence please. Isolated words don't really tell us much.

  2. It's just a title... "Strike your Fortune with the CSO" so what does this phrase generally mean?
    Thanks

  3. I'm confused about that slogan, too. Normally, "strike your fortune" applies to making a lot of money. But, in this case, CSO stands for Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. I think it may mean that a person can get a lot of pleasure from attending orchestra performances and supporting it with donations.

  4. "Come strike your fortune"
    If I were to use this as a slogan for a casino, would that be right in terms of the meaning?
    Thanks ^^
