Answer Two:

There is such a thing as an 8 pin no tap tournament, usually for younger bowlers. In that case, an 8 count would also count as a strike.

Answer One:

In the game of 9-pin no-tap, 9 or 10 pins down on the first ball is a strike, and 8 pins down is only scored as an 8 count and you must throw at the two remaining pins for the second ball in that frame. In the game of 8-pin no-tap, 8, 9 or 10 pins down on first ball is scored as a strike, and you will get a full rack of pins for the next frame instead of having to attempt a spare.

Why is 9 pin bowling called no tap?

9 pin no tap, means if you throw your first ball down the lane and take out only 9, then it is a strike and the lane resets to 10 pins and you move on to the next frame. Ninepin bowling and 9 pin no tap are not the same thing. Ninepin bowling is a type of "bowling." No tap is a game type played within "Tenpin" (traditional US alley bowling).
