A lot of work went into determining what the odds were of getting a Jem'hadar Attack Ship from the original lockboxes and the figure that was arrived at was a 0.5% (or 1 in 200) chance of acquiring a ship on every box you open (i.e. opening more boxes doesn't 'increase' your chances of winning one, just gives you another roll of the dice).

There's no indication that these drop rates have changed - yes - we see a lot of ships being won but there's a heckuva lot more boxes being opened that aren't winners - that's why these are known as '$250' ships.

Caveat emptor.
