Payday loans are legal in Nevada (see Nevada Payday Loans or Nevada Installment Loans to compare fees and requirements for individual lenders).

Rates or Fees (max) Not Specified (After default: interest rate must be equal to or less than the prime rate at the largest bank in the State of Nevada plus 10 %)
Term Limitations Max: 35 days; up to 90 days allowed if the initial agreement provides for installment payments and is not subject to extension
General Loan Terms

In Nevada, rollovers are not specified but lenders cannot extend payment period beyond 60 days after expiration of initial loan period. Nothing is mentioned about cooling periods between loans. Nevada requires extended repayment plans.
