What does a strike do in bowling?

In ten-pin bowling, there are 10 frames in 1 game. A strike is marked when you knock down all the pins with your first roll. A strike gives you extra pins as a bonus. You do not add up the score for this frame until you have rolled the ball two more times.

Is a strike worth more than a spare?

This is because, as we now know—a strike is worth 10 points, plus the extra bonus points earned on your next 2 rolls, and a spare is worth 10 points, plus the extra bonus points earned on your next roll.
