The conjunctions you mention, of Haman's lots vs. the Urim ve-Tummim, is highlighted very well, I think, in the Midrash that suggests that Ahasuerus has all the temple implements, that they are the utensils at his party and which is depected in the recent comic book adaptation of the Megillah illustrated by Jordan Gorfinkel, where he puts the urim ve-tummim on Ahasuerus at the party: https://jewishreviewofbooks.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/03/Esther-interior-1.jpg
