    take a chance on

    Dear Friends,

    The title of a song in Mamma Mia! is 'Take a chance on me'. What does that (Take a chance on me) mean? My dictionaries gave no reference. Is it frequent in common parlance?

    Thanks a lot.

    Best,

    Palinkasocsi

    Re: take a chance on

    If you bet lots of money on a horse, you are taking a chance.

    If you are planning to move away to a different country, but you aren't sure if you will like living there - you are taking a chance.

    Taking a chance is accepting that a situation/choice involves chance: its outcome is uncertain.
