Hextech Chest also has many contingencies in place, one contingency is ‘Bad Luck Protection’. What this does, prevent you from having bad luck when opening multiple Hextech Chest in a row.

Another ‘Bad Luck Protection’ is in place for Gemstones, you will at least get a Gemstone within 50 Hextech Chest openings.
If you receive a Hextech Chest inside a Hextech Chest, the chance of receiving another within that Hextech Chest stay the same at 10%. Who knows, you may get extremely lucky.
All Skins no matter if they are Legendary, Epic or Legacy etc, have the same chance of dropping. It really is the luck of the draw which Skin Shard you will receive. If you get an ‘Ultimate’ or ‘Mythic’ Skin Shard, it will have auto-redeeming permanents. To put it simply, it does not need Orange Essence to unlock the skin shard. If you do already own the Skin Shard, you can disenchant for Orange Essences.
Riot has also made sure that Champion Shards are worth 4800 BE or more. This doesn’t mean you can’t get champions under 4800 BE. You can receive multiple Champion Shard that totals 4800 or greater. Sometimes, you can receive 3 Champion Shards within one Hextech Chest.
