LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) -

He may not have won the $1.6 billion dollar jackpot; but, a White County man still cashed in on the Powerball.

Kenneth Rettig of Beebe won $100,000.

He purchased his ticket at Ahn Enterprises on W. Center Street in his hometown. For selling the winning ticket, the store is eligible for a $1,000 retailer bonus.

Rettig said he told his wife, Jennifer, first.

She was by his side Thursday when he went to pick up his winnings from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.

The couple say they plan to pay off their home with the prize.
